4.16 Friday 13th 1902: Uncle Jeb's beard - his pride and glory - ultimately was his undoing when he tripped over it and fell down the stairs, sadly ending his, and its, 12 year reign as "Champion Beard of Illinois".
Title translates to "Daughter of the world bear". A remarkable vintage Japanese postcard image
I bet the seated fella wasn't even originally meant to be in the photograph. They just needed someone to support the beard.
