For today’s Mustache Monday, let us introduce Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906), Norwegian playwrite, author of A Doll’s House and Hedda Gabler, among others. Clearly, electrified hair = great theater (see also: Peter Sellers).
This photo is one of over 260 portraits of notable figures collected by radical publisher Benjamin R. Tucker in the late 19th century. Check them out here.
Please observe the New York Public Library’s mastery of tumblr with it’s institution of Mustache Mondays and the fact that, dude. That is impressive.
