Nothing Fancy
Photograph by Jim Richardson—1981

A few snips of the scissors and a boy's agony will end as barber Charles "Andy" Andrews works on his umpteenth head of hair in Cuba. The barbershop is now gone, as is the liquor store, the feed store, the lumberyard, and many other businesses in town. With the opening of a new café and an antiques market, however, Cuba shows that it is not ready to become a ghost town.
