Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century

For an extraordinary collection of era-specific mustaches and invaluable resource links to mustachiana, there’s no better blog than Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century.

Dear Gentle Reader,

Many of the following pages have graphic and clear images of the masculine mustache in all its forms, both sublime and grotesque. My intent is not to shock or titillate, but merely to inform on the subject. The Nineteenth Century gave us many things, but above all it was a hotbed of facial hair experimentation and this is but a poor sampling of those many lost forms.
