Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow (Sorry!)


I was driving around today looking for something interesting when I spotted an interesting bar (the Opal). But when I walked up there were two guys there complaining up a storm about how their girlfriends didn’t appreciate them going out drinking every Friday. I thought I’d leave those two fun seekers alone and instead found this wonderful and vacant building at 5216 South Tacoma Way. The building had been the home to Untouchable Cuts Barbarshop and peering though the window I could see some remains of the business. The is now for lease. The Tacoma Public Library’s Northwest Room has little on the building except that it was built in 1906 and in 1913 it had housed American Dye Works (Hashime Imamura, operator). The present day bars on the windows and door suggest perhaps there have been security concerns. I love the paint job! 🙂

Good to see you here!
