Facial Hair in the Archives

November 7, 2013

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.

After the ball is over!

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.

Goeth brothers

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.

    Love seeing the photo of the Goeths. Some of the moustached brothers (Where is Fred, or did I make him up?) are featured in the midst of a political caper in a chapter of my incomplete novel about Otto Koehler and Hedda Bergemeister. http://postcardssanantonio.com/chapter-three.html
