Men and Mo’s in Tea Tree Gully

Men, moustaches and Tea Tree Gully have a long history together.  Throughout Movember, Tea Tree Gully Library will be hosting a display of photographs and trivia facts to pay tribute to the moustache’s cultural relevance throughout time.

For 150 years the moustache has played a significant part in the development of the City. With glory days in the nineteenth century and a revival in the 1970s, the mo has adorned the upper lips of many men in the community…and we have the photos to prove it.

Where's YOUR moustache?

Where’s YOUR moustache?

In fact shaving with stone razors dates back to Neolithic times – the oldest documented image of a man with a moustache is a Scythian horseman from 300 B.C.

The Local History photo collection has been well scrutinised to unearth a handsome selection of images for a photographic moustache feast of hair quality, colour, style, length and creativity.

The exhibition is a free event and donation tins will be provided if you wish to support men’s health charities in Movember.
