Description

A man sitting at the storefront of a barber shop, facing the street, blushes in embarrassment as a group of ladies passes by while he is having his face lathered with shaving soap.

The full caption reads as follows:

Captain ogleby, who annoys the Miss Lankysters so much on the promenade by his obtrusive admiration, is discovered early one morning, by his exultant victims, in the act of having an “easy shave” in the somewhat limited premises of the village Figaro.
