MAN WITH UNFRIENDLY MUTTON CHOPS IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

A gentleman with unfriendly mutton chops poses for his portrait at the studio of P. E. Chillman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Why use the adjective “unfriendly”? The answer is that  the term “friendly” mutton chops refers to mutton chops that are joined by a mustache. This gentleman’s mutton chops lack a connecting mustache, thus, the mutton chops are not friendly.
