William Booth

So the Salvation Army is celebrating its 125 years of existence this year. I thought I'd post something today on its founder William Booth. I think I will come back to this topic because there is a lot to say about the man and even more about the Salavtion Army. But first, a portrait of the man. Or portraits. Of the man. And his beard! It sometimes makes him look like Osama Bin Laden, sometimes like a druid, but in any case I'm pretty sure guitar manufacturer Gibson based its Flying V model on it.

  The beard of a boss, ladies and gentlemen!
