The handkerchiefs of the 1950s take center stage in The Heyday of Hankies
. As a reflection of the society in which they were manufactured, handkerchiefs of the mid-20th
century chronicled the changing mores of
the Western World. Hankies reflected the new interests of
women by offering humor, instructions and advice. Modern
day guests laugh at one such hanky which instructs women
on “How to Keep Your Husband.” You and your guests will
be delighted by the glorious, colorful, whimsical creations
from the designers of the 1950s. Find out how Little Lulu
single-handedly killed the handkerchief industry! This
program will fascinate anyone who remembers the 1950s –
and everyone who enjoys retro culture.
