Honoring Presidents’ Day, David Hoey & team collaborated with Woodard & Greenstein Gallery to present Spring’s white hot trend against a backdrop of the gallery’s collection of Presidential Campaign bandannas. Featuring bandannas ranging from 1880 to 1912, our 58th Street windows mix a little fashion with history. Specially-printed bandannas were a significant part of the political arena in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. By 1800, bandannas were being produced to commemorate events such as the American Revolution and the Federal Period. Later, their use became tied to presidential campaigns, and bandannas were given out at parades, convention halls, and speeches. They were used as clothing patches or pocket handkerchiefs, were worn around the head or neck, or were simply waved joyously in crowds.
