To encourage, and possibly intimidate, participants in the Movember| charity moustache growing month, the Maritime Archives and Library| presents some inspirational images from our extensive collection of men with fantastic facial hair.
While the Victorians favoured the full beard, moustache and side whiskers combination, with the coming of the 20th century facial hair became more controlled and moustaches were the order of the day.
These images are some examples within our collections of elegantly turned out men who embraced the moustache and wore it with pride - and could shave at sea in a gale. Click on each thumbnail to see the full image.
