Thanks Sharon, I love how you pull so many interesting elements of history together in your blogs. When you mention the barber-surgeon, all I can think of right now is the musical Sweeny Todd – “The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” Great fun! ~Jen Red~

Fascinating! I never knew most of this and I shall never think of a barber pole the same way again. Thanks for sharing.
