The Modern Barber Pole originated in the day when blood letting was one of the principal duties of the barbering trade. The two spiral ribbons painted around the wooden pole represented two long bandages, one twisted around the arm before bleeding (to make the vein stand out), and the other used to bind it afterwards.The patient clutched the staff firmly during the entire operation.
