Historical moustachioed men for Movember
When Grant Vogl set up his latest exhibit at the Bytown Museum, he used handlebars, bulletheads, and mutton chops...all for a study of Ottawa's history in moustaches.
It's an exhibit in honour of Movember, the annual campaign where men raise money for prostate and testicular cancer research by growing moustaches and getting sponsors.
Regular participant Vogl, Bytown's collections and exhibitions manager, decided to raise funds at the museum, with a box set up in a little room where he has posted archival photos of men in Ottawa's past who do indeed sport some pretty impressive staches. It's called "The Great Mo-Ments in Bytown", and Alan got a preview this week.
