It’s exactly what you think it is: lots of old-timey pictures of men with impressive mustaches. The photos come from the collections of the University of Kentucky Archives.

They are, however, categorized with humorous descriptions, like “Business Mustache,” “Faceshelf,” “Perfect Specimens” and “Battle Mustache.”
