“You look so good.” – Underground by David Gilbert
You look good because that local barber does a good job.
No real barbers’ barber’s poles in Germany, though ;-).
But the red white stripe pattern is used for many other markers.
No Barber poles in Germany? I am shocked! But yes, I know this is not a barber pole. Perhaps a marker in a waterway? British barber poles are red and white striped, but American are red, white, and blue striped. Has something to do with the flag. I still like your photo.
Really, I have no idea – if you had not mentioned barber poles I wouldn’t have given a second thought. It’s a small canal – I wonder what a marker could be used for.
The wikipedia article about barber poles is quite interesting – so, thank you for prompting me to read it :-)
