These sunglasses may look reminiscent of John Lennon, but they are actually much older. These blue-tinted glasses are non-prescription from around the Civil War. They are about 4 ¼ inch wide altogether, with each lens at about 1 ¼ inch, and the nose bridge at about an inch. The ear pieces are bent to fit the head, and are slightly off-set from each other, making them seem a little crooked. The right lens doesn't quite fit into the rims, so there is a little space. This is an interesting look at how the fashion and manufacturing in sunglasses has evolved over the last century.
