The City Seen from The Boston Globe
WEST ROXURY -- For a barber, no day is busier than Saturday. A sign in the front window at Phil's Barber Shop on Centre Street boasts 'seven and a half barbers' ready to clip, buzz, and comb every Saturday. On one recent Saturday, Danny Lourenco gave 8-year-old Patrick Dougherty a 'boy's regular.' After his trim, Patrick helped himself to three lollipops -- one for him and one for each of his sisters.There's been a barber shop at this spot on Centre Street for more than a century. Behind the coatrack in Phil's is a certificate issued in 1998 by the Boston Business Heritage Project that cites the shop for 100 years of 'enterprise, dedication, and long-time service to the community.'
