Description Original B&W print. View of Richmond Terrace in New Brighton, Staten Island, with commercial buildings along both sides of the street. In the foreground at left is a barber pole on the sidewalk; a similar pole is seen further down the street. A sign in the window at far left appears to say "TIP TOP / HAIR CUT PARLOR." Two signs hang from a building at left: "TAILOR / FURRIER" and "LAUNDRY." A car is parked in the street near a "BUS / STOP" sign. A handwritten inscription on the reverse identifies this as "old barber poles" on the north side of Richmond Terrace, between Westervelt Avenue and Jersey Street, photo by R.C.
