Facial Hair in the Archives
With both No Shave November and Movemeber occurring this month, November is generally considered National Beard Month. Each week this month, we will be featuring beards, moustaches and other examples of facial hair on The Top Shelf. First up are group portraits.
Entitled “After the Ball is Over!” this photograph features (l to r) Emil Schuetze, photographer Louis De Planque (bottom), saloon keeper George Roberts (top), and Paul Nix.
Next up is a studio portrait of the Goeth brothers. Excluding Max, all the sons of Anton and Ottilie Goeth have some sort of facial hair. L to r: Edward Wilhelm Goeth, a rancher; Conrad A. Goeth, a lawyer; Adolph Carl Goeth, a merchant; Max A. Goeth, a rancher; and Richard A. Goeth, a doctor.
A.H. Elnaugh, 77; W.L. Miller, 75; and G.W. Coleman, 89 (l-r) reminisce at the 23rd convention of the Old Trail Drivers Association at the Gunter Hotel.
And, lastly, the Amarillo Cornet Band, with moustaches on 9 of the 10 members.
