The first beard mutation. A classic of rock and politics.
A style sometimes known as 'friendly mutton chops'
"Facial hair was big in the 19th century. Look at paintings or photographs from this time, and chances are the men will have beards, moustaches or sideburns – and sometimes elaborate combinations of all three.
For much of the century, the emphasis was on beards and ’burns. Big hairy beards were all the rage in the middle decades. The bushier the beard, the more virile the man, some people believed. In an age as obsessed with health issues as our own, some people claimed that good beards meant good health."
