    This 1880s cabinet card photograph falls into the oddball category!

    I would think that the man has a lip problem-- maybe a cleft lip that he is trying to hide with his extended moustache.

    Or maybe this was part of his evidence in a lawsuit against his barber (just kidding).

    Whatever the reason it is interesting to speculate on and fits well in a collection of strange images.

      Maybe he was just trying to be funny . I detect a bit of a smerk ! He could have evened his moustache up after the photo .
