His father refused an offer to run away with the circus. That is how Vincent came to be a barber.
The story . . . Papa Attianese was a trumpet player of some renown when P.T. Barnum offered him a job with the circus. Papa said, "No".
He'd rather setup shop in Bridgeport and raise a family. The family would eventually live over the
barber shop on Main Street.
Vincent took over the shop in 1947.
