Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century

Though my own personal philosophy is "no jewellery, no facial hair", I nevertheless got a real kick out of Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century, a blog which explores, you guessed it, the "hotbed of facial hair experimentation" that was the 19th century. Includes pictures (mostly taken from the University of Kentucky Archives), glossary, and analysis. Especially pertinent to these sad modern times is the blog-owners discussion of Beardism. (Those damn kids today and their stupid goatees!)
