Title: Fred Bates, Mens Hairdresser/Barber, High Street Strood
Post by: jon attwood on March 03, 2011, 16:10:20
One of my ancestors (Fred Bates) ran a barbershop or mens hairdresser in Strood high street for several years, up to about 1955. I would love to know more about it, so if anyone has any memories or photos that might be relevant please share them here.
Thanks
Jon

Hi I lived in Strood at the back of the High Street from 1945 to 1958, and the shop was known localy as Slasher Bates, because he always managed to nick you.
