DAPPER GENTLEMAN WITH A HUGE MUSTACHE IN SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA

This cabinet card portrait features a well dressed gentleman wearing a huge mustache. The mustache is joined with his sideburns. To see other amazing mustaches, click on the cabinet card gallery’s category of “Mustaches (Only the Best). The photographer of this facial hair extravaganza is D. B. Millard. He operated a studio “Over the Post Office” in Scranton, Pennsylvania. His cabinet card price list can be seen on the reverse of this photograph. The cost of a cabinet card was $3.00 but volume buyers could purchase a dozen photographs for $1.50 each. The internet resource, Langdon Road, reveals that Millard owned Millard’s Gallery, at 314 Lackawanna; in the city of Scranton. His obituary appears in the “Photographic Times and American Photographer” (1891). The article labels him as the best and most popular photographer in Scranton. The obituary notes that Millard died of heart failure after a short illness. Millard’s name appears in Scranton’s business directories from at least 1879 through 1888. Other directories list his name as “Durand B. Millard”. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).
