Body and Soul Salon - Charlottesville

Click above for a larger image

Using the “wayback” machine, this is the same beauty salon as in the prior post, but before the restoration of the Paramount. I remember initially being interested in taking this because of the contrast of the beauty parlor with the standard pistol target pasted on the brick wall in the background. These targets showed up in a number of walls in the area, and on the pillars of the Belmont Bridge. They were evidently very difficult to remove, and were painted over in addition to scraping.
This was taken on a 6X7 cm. Rapid Omega 100 camera, with a 58 mm lens (about the same as a 28mm wide angle on 35 mm as far as perspective goes), on Tri-X film.
