Another of those roadside barber under Daryaganj footbridge. Not having a permanent position for Barber Shop. These people roam around cut hair or shave seating in the roadside pavement as can be seen here.

In Hindi or in Bengali we call it the "Italian Saloon". Italian is a corruption for "Eenta Ley aa" meaning "Bring a Brick". Usually the customer seats on the Brick and the barber continues his work. That is the origin of the title of this photo.
