About this work
The barber is black, the customers are white. "Another picture which we engrave in our present Issue is of a widely different character--Eyre Crowe's "Barber's shop at Richmond, Virginia" (260). Without putting forth high pretensions as a work of art it is, from the nature of its subject, invested with a local interest at the present moment which will recommend it to the attention of many of our travelled readers."— Illustrated London news, op. cit., p. 216
