21. Barbers, phone booths and petrol sellers

Painted from the motor park, this was one of those rare occasions where the paint seemed to apply itself, and I completed it in one session. A tiny hairdresser’s is squashed in between two phone booths and two petrol sellers. Quite often a hairdresser’s of such tiny dimensions might display a grandiose sign, which would read Heaven’s Hairdressing Complex. The same booths can be seen in the distance in 'Early morning by the motor park' (2).
