25 Vintage Mustaches

 

With over 17,000 historic photos on Flickr, the Library of Congress is a treasure trove for vintage awesomeness. Not only do the fine people at the LOC share an amazing archive for the world to enjoy, but they also categorize and tag many of the images, helping others sort through their extensive collections.

One tag that caught my eye was ‘great mustaches of the LOC‘. With approximately 350 photos tagged as such, I knew I would not be disappointed.

I went through all 350 this morning and below are the Sifter’s 25 personal favourites. Enjoy my friends!
