No, I'm pretty sure that any election featuring Lord Salisbury was hairier.

Only one of these men had remotely remarkable facial hair by the standards of the time.

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

This.

And by mentioning Salisbury, let's not forget Charles Stuart Parnell and the Irish Parliamentary Paper who certainly had a fine taste in facial hair.

At least none had neckbeards. One of the few horrifying things about the National Museum of Wales are the busts of various 19th century Cardiff Liberal dignitaries and assorted other local bigwaigs. You think at first they are wearing ruffs, which seems a little odd for the 19th century. So you have a closer look...

The 1890 election was an example of battle between moustache and beard.

Honoré Mercier with the moustache.

Louis-Olivier Taillon with the long beard.

Sir Henry Parkes and Sir George Dibbs would like to disagree.
