DAPPER MAN WITH BIG MUSTACHE AND SMALL BEARD IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

A well dressed man with a large mustache and a clump of chin whiskers, poses for his portrait at the studio of Eggan, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To see other interesting exhibitions of facial hair, visit the Cabinet Card Gallery’s categories of Beards (Only the Best) and Mustaches (Only the Best). It is difficult to identify the photographer of this photograph. The city of Minneapolis hosted a number of photographers that shared the name “Eggan”, each of them sharing the same studio address. Apparently the Eggan family, which was of Norwegian descent,  had a passion for photography. Photographers included Ole P., Halvor P., S. A., Sevor P., Stephen, and James Eggan.

  1. A GENTLEMAN ISN’T A GENTLMAN WITHOUT A MUSTACHE.
    Every lady loves a man with a mustache.
    This has been brought to you by the Victorian Spam Society.

  2. about what year would you guess this was taken?

    • I don’t know when the photograph was taken and am reluctant to take a guess due to insufficient information pertaining to the photographer and studio. Sometimes the structure and design of the cabinet card helps in dating the images. In addition, someone knowledgeable about fashion or hair styles of that era, may be able to answer the question. You can find a number of internet articles that provide information about dating cabinet card photographs.
