'Ponytail' hangs on the wall in his Ponytails Shoe Shine Salonn in Washington, DC on October 25, 2012. After he passed on in 2011, employees continued the business. Most customers come in a drop off multiple pairs of shoes for employees to shine then pick them up later. And it's a nice spot just for people to come by, sit down, read the paper and chat. As U street development continues, the fate of the shop's future is uncertain. (Photo by Linda Davidson / The Washington Post via Getty Images)
