The Wooden Frame H. Wagner Barber Shop In Harlem, NY 1932 (Photograph)

A wonderful wooden frame H. Wagner Barber Shop photographed Charles Von Urban at 167 East 126th Street in Harlem, New York in 1932.

This early Harlem house was a 18th century two-story (three if you include a probable basement). The structure has a simple plank by plank construction, with three inset windows and a metal roof. The little wood frame house is sandwiched between two multi-story apartment buildings (though the building on the right looks like it might be constructed of wood-see doors).
