Sweeney Todds barber shop, Christchurch
Sweeney Todds barber shop, Christchurch
At 62B Bargates. There is no apostrophe in TODDS on the name sign.
A depiction of dripping blood is below BARBER SHOP in the window.

Sweeney Todd was a fictional murderous barber who first appeared in the Victorian penny dreadful The String of Pearls (184647). The story became a staple of Victorian melodrama and London urban legend, and has been retold many times since. I wonder why anyone who knows the story would use a barber shop with this name...
