Father's Day Tie Sale 1927 / SeacoastNh.comStrawbery Banke Presents
HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #155

Some things never change, like the last-minute gift for Father’s Day in June. This 1927 store window display is from "Trottier’s on the Square". Besides a gigantic tie-shaped sign that reads "Make Him Smile" the elaborate neck and bow tie display features detachable collars, white shirts and a Panama hat. Sorry papa, no power tools.
