  1. Hi!

    I’m trying to get in touch with the curator of this blog, but can’t seem to find where to do that. Any chance I can reach him or her here?

  2. This style of beard was actually quite common during the 19th Century. It was generally called a “chin curtain”, because it did not grow alongside a mustache. It is also referred to as a Shenandoah beard and is still the regulation beard for the Amish. thanks for the pic!

  3. Thanks for the information about beards. I guess this gentleman’s beard is only notable relative to present beard styling,
