Just for Fun! “Beard of the Month”

I will be beginning a new and very serious feature on Northeastlore………..

A celebration of the Victorian Gentlemanly art of pogonotrophy (google it!). To clarify this will also include moustaches and whiskers of note.

Just to get us kicked off I will feature four outstanding examples to put the modern hipster to shame!

Beard4Mr James Clephan, journalist & antiquary (d. 25/02/1888)

Beard3Colonel Duncan M.P., Artillery Officer

Beard2Mr. John Galleon, Member of Newcastle Board of Guardians, d. 9/02/1888

Beard1Mr. S.B. Coxon, Mining Engineer, d. 28/12/1887
