Barbershop Pole Motley Challenge Vector

Barber Shop Pole

Besides the sports card trader, the coolest thing on Crookston’s Main Street was the barber shop.

I remember as a youngster riding in our talking 1980’s Chrysler New Yorker and seeing the red and white barber’s pole that spun forever upwards.  I never went inside, but it must have been a fine establishment for it to have such a magical contraption attached to its storefront.

The barber pole is a lot like Mary Poppin’s carpet bag.  How does that red and white pole keep rising out of nowhere?

This being part 2 of the Motley Challenge , it should be noted that the pole’s red and white helical stripes were made from the same strokes as my dad’s mustache  and the foundation of Pipe Dream.
