Funny-Looking Guy Photo From the 1800s

Found recently in the same stash of antique cabinet photos as the Crazy Eyed Baby, this gentleman gave me pause. He's got a New Wave hairdo going on a century early, but even without that, there's just something odd-looking about him, no? He's definitely a keeper.


  1. He looks as if he just came from work, where he wears a helmet or partial face cover of some kind...a blacksmith or welder? It might explain the messed up hair and the difference in coloring between the top of his face and the bottom.

  2. Hmmm...that's possible. But I still prefer to believe he was an early aficionado of New Wave hairstyles.
