Every Last Photo Ever Taken of Good Old Abe Lincoln

Every known photo of Abraham Lincoln from 1846 until his death in 1865. He was about 37 years old in that first shot, 56 when he died. 

My faves are at 0:07, 1:20, and 6:11. Especially the wild hair at 0:07 — a real frontier boy, there.  I like it far better than, say, the combover at 0:19. How did a guy with those looks ever get to be president?  We were more broad-minded in those days.
