: Ear cleaning at a barber's shop, China

: c.1905

: A man with a distinctive Manchu hairstyle sits on a stool to have his ears cleaned at a barber's shop. Several false 'queues' (waist-long pigtails), hang on the wall behind him; an equivalent to modern-day hair extensions. Original manuscript caption: Ear cleaning in Barber's Shop Note false queues on wall. How up-to-date China is: even practice of wearing false hair has reached us from Europe?
