Trumpers Barbers - Mayfair, London
Barbershop in Central London - Mayfair. G F Trumper & Sons. An elaborate belt-driven machinery above the mirror drives a head massaging brush. Established 1875. Matchless range of gentleman's fragrances and grooming products. Still at the same location today and still has the massaging brushes - in use today! Their own preparations bear a famous cap in the shape of a crown - visible in the cabinets above the sink counter.
