Quick hair cut in Eufaula, Alabama

Wearing his Dickies coveralls, Fred Phillips of Bluff City Barber Shop in Eufaula, Alabama gave me a quick hair cut Thursday afternoon. We passed through Eufaula, a fishing town on the Chattahoochee River, on our way to Panama City, Florida. Phillips started barbering in 1961 after realizing that he could make money on the family farm growing peanuts, cotton and corn. He still uses the hand-cranked cash register pictured above.
