Large original wood and masonite sign from JFK's inaugural parade on January 20, 1961, measuring 23 x 27.5, featuring a large color image of the presidential seal. In fine condition. From the Robert L. White Collection. Following Kennedy's swearing-in as president and iconic inaugural address—which featured the famous line, 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country'—a vast parade to the White House took place along Pennsylvania Avenue. The three-hour-long procession was watched by tens of thousands of spectators in person and millions on television. These rare signs were specially made for JFK's inaugural parade, and represent a truly historic day in American history.
