For 150 years the moustaches had 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!

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 BC.

During November, 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. 

Our local history photo collection has been well scrutinised to unearth a handsome selection of images for a photographic feast of moustache 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.
