Does this man look old and wrinkled to you? A fascinating article I came across today explains that Lincoln looks older in photos than he did in real life due to the photographic process of the time. It provides some colorized and corrected versions of photos to show what - they believe - Lincoln looked like at the time. It's a big difference!
