Marv's is local owned barbershop, I really don't see many of them nowadays. The parking lot was full. On the porch sat two rocking chairs - midwest flair.
I really thought the pole signified the patriotism of the U.S.A. but after researching on WIKI I was really mistaken.
In the middle ages the poles were erected outside the Barbers office but the barber performed bloodletting--hence the red color. The white designated bandages use. Gruesome I think.
Blue was added later but the reason is not known, perhaps a homage to the U.S.A. Well Marv is really a patriot, he flies his American, POW and Honor our Troops flags with pride.
