The Cop 'Stache, Already In Vogue in the 1890s

Yesterday, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK wondered if I'd received the vintage Dallas cop photo he found for sale on eBay. Nope, had not. Which got me to looking. And, voila: I found this original cabinet card (taken at a photo studio downtown) featuring a Dallas Police officer that dates back to the late 1800s, shortly after the DPD's establishment. Very Bradley Whitford.
