Archives Photos of the Day: Moustaches

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s always a challenge to come up with a theme for my weekly series. However, being that this month is all about facial hair growth for Movember, I decided to make “moustaches” my focus this week. All of the photos below were taken in Vancouver over the last century and found via the Vancouver Archives.
