Ephemera: All that Facial Hair (1910s)


While these guys look like they could be 1890s fellas I'm fairly certain this is more from around 1905-1910 judging by the tail on the guitar in the lower right. What a cool group, though, huh? I wonder if all that facial hair is the real deal. If it is they'd be styled perfectly for some of the citygoer facial hair fashions of our time.

In other news: I have been hammered by the flu for the past few days. I will try to get back to everyone's needs but please bear with me. Flu and polar vortex (it's been 20-25 degrees F the past four days) -- a winning combination.

I think the facial hair is false. If you look close most seem much to young to be sporting such mature growth and some of the mustaches and beards just have that false look, if only slightly.

I would be interested in knowing what the objects are that the two men standing on the far left are holding.

Yup, I figured fake as well and I wondered about those two, too! I feel like the one standing on the far left is holding some sort of chimes kind of gizmo.
