The moustache has gone in and out of fashion over the years but recently there has been a comeback in the form of Movember. During the month of November you will find many gentlemen around town sporting new facial hair.  You may see an Imperial, Dali, Pencil, Walrus, English or Handlebar on the faces of your co-workers or neighbours and even try one on yourself.  This phenomenon helps raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer.  For more information go to the Movember website.   

In reviewing the Museum Collection I have come across a number of items that relate to the moustache.  Below you will find photographs of men with elaborate facial hair, items that were made just to help the moustache out and ways to maintain it.
