Facial hair through a lifetime

November 14, 2013

Continuing with our November feature of facial hair, today we highlight the styles of individuals at different points in their lives.

We start with Benjamin Southern Wathen, first pictured with a simple moustache circa 1870, which becomes a Van Dyke by approximately 1892. Wathen was a prominent civil engineer in Dallas.

Louis de Planque and family     Louis de Planque
Some people find a style and stick with it, like photographer Louis de Planque of Corpus Christi. Pictured on the left with his family, de Planque has essentially the same beard in the second photograph that appears to be years later.

John William Schuwirth     John William Schuwirth
John William Schuwirth kept things pretty similar over the years – a full goatee on the left with it trimmed down and more of an unruly Van Dyke later on. Schuwirth was a professor at the German-English School in San Antonio.
