Village Idiot


What a handsome brutish looking doorman this joint had about 45 years ago!

This was the Village Barn in Greenwich Village of NYC. The handsome brute is no doorman or bouncer. It is just little old me.

If I remember correctly this place was known for its folk singing and maybe hootenannies. Back then I was just getting to appreciate folk music. I just fell in love with Joan Baez Concert Album II and raring to learn hear other folk music.

I find it interesting that the words AIR CONDITIONED are on top. Saying you were air conditioned would draw people in.

In today’s world it is expected without bragging on it.
