Great photo Michael.

Drivers licenses in the UK didn't have photos back then. My avatar is the photo from my Student ID card in 1974.

By 1976 I had added a mustache.

In my crowd, we call those fine 'staches you menfolk are sporting "pornstaches". Y'all have some stellar examples! And authentically 70's era, to boot!
