This is the basement entrance to a 120 year old limestone commercial building in Joliet, IL. Once, (when I was young), this area was the one of the busiest in whole state of Illinois. Buildings often rented their basements to small businesses, such as this tiny Barber Shop. In the 1980's our Beloved President, Ronald Regan changed the tax laws to favor his rich friends and began our slow march to globalization, corporate rule, eroding of the Middle Class, end of Workers' Unions, and bankruptcy of small Mom & Pop enterprises such as this. The Barber Shop is long gone, the downtown is, for all purposes, vacant as are all the rest of the businesses in small American towns. Thanks, Ronnie! You did your 10 buddies proud!
