Roy Barton is leaving us after many years. Didn't go to him,but, as a kid, went to Clyde's Barber Shop on Clark Street at the intersection of Manchester and Clark. Trinity Place is there now. Also went to Miller's in the Midd. Shopping Center until they closed.( Saw Dr. Peil who had an office tucked back in there next to Miller's on occasion)Ahh, the good ole days- right Spider???

Not just Middletown, barbers nationwide are going away.

Info from Wiki:
Some barbers prefer to see themselves as hairdressers or hairstylists. There is a common misbelief that barbers do not perform any service other than hair cutting and that cosmetologists perform all coloring and perms. In fact, barbers can cut hair, trim beards, color, perm, provide facials and shave. They are also licensed to work with artificial hair replacement products (toupées, etc). Many working stylists are legally barbers. There is some professional rivalry between barbers and cosmetologists, both of which are licensed and regulated. At one time, both groups were allowed to cut hair, but only barbers were allowed to shave or trim beards: this required mastering the arcane technique of using a straight razor. Today, barbers and stylists may be found working side by side in establishments known as male salons. Male salons have afforded the barber the opportunity to remain traditional in all aspects of the term, yet also progressively contemporary as fashion and trends evolve. In male salons, hairstylists and barbers seek to accommodate the modern male hairstyle trends by employing traditional hair styling and straight razor shaves with modern practices such as texturizing techniques and color.
