The contents of Ed Nelson’s suitcase, the only item Nelson took with when he left the Hair Shaft on June 24. Nelson has been a barber in Dinkytown for 49 years. “The only bad thing is we’re packing up and leaving. Tonight’s my last night. When I take my suitcase there, that’s the end of it,” Nelson said. “If I could, I’d work until my ambulance takes me out.”
