Yesterday was the beginning of Movember, a month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. The annual event aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. To join the cause and help raise awareness, Europeana.eu has selected some dashing examples of moustaches throughout history. All images are Public Domain (French National Library).
