SHORTY'S BARBER-ART THE BUTCHER SHOPS ONCE - CHICAGO, IL
Shorty's was in operation for many years surrounding the 1950's era--like some barber shops of the day, it was rumored to also be a bookie joint.
I remember Shorty's. He would always give away suckers to the neighborhood kids. What a nice guy!
Art the Butcher was a family run, old fashion butcher shop. Sawdust on the floors. They always had fresh meat. You could watch them grind up your cut of fresh meat into hamburger. They had good baloney too!!!
Everyone was so friendly back in the day.
