The interior of barber shop: On the left a man stands before a mirror, face contorted as he wipes his jaw, unaware of the boy behind him pointing and laughing at him as he holds the man's pigtail in his hand. Another customer is shown in the center seated on a chair, the barber behind him about to cut off his pigtail as well. The third man sits in a chair on the right, reading a newspaper; his lower head is also shorn of its pigtail. The room show other customers as well as stands for wigs. Above the door on the right hangs a sign "R. Crop'em, hair dresser", a second sign beneath reads "Shave for a penny. Crop for two penny." Through the window on the left in the back, is a display of ladies' hats.
