I can't offer anything about this gentleman except for his name - Albert Wolfe (Wolffungen) – and that he sat for this photograph in Berlin c. 1901. The twinkle in his eye along with his general manly beauty have already made him a popular guy around the internet's tumblr circuit, but with that well-curled 'stache, I thought he'd also be a splendid Mr. Movember. And, of course, he's just all-around sigh-worthy, which makes him perfect for our Casual Friday.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
