Antique Handkerchiefs exhibit closes

August 31

Event Navigation

The Fred and Addie Drummond Home will display a collection of antique handkerchiefs from August 1 through 31. The special collection of dainty squares of fabric will feature a variety of cheerful designs.

In the late 1800s, women often carried handkerchiefs to dab their nose and dry a tear. Handkerchiefs were commonly used by men and women before the mass production of disposable facial tissues after the Spanish Flu of 1918. Women of the 19th century, like Adeline Drummond, elevated the quality of handkerchiefs through the skill of embroidery and tatting, adding monograms and designs.
