Garfield, Hancock Stanhopes


ABOVE:  Garfield memorial monocular.   The image is a composite of 21 separate photographs:  Garfield, the nineteen previous presidents who are arranged in a wreath around Garfield, and, at the very bottom, Chester A. Arthur, who became president upon Garfield’s death by assassination in 1881.

ABOVE:  Monocular produced for Garfield's1880 presidential campaign. The same image is commonly found in Garfield pigs (and I’ve heard of it in a Stanhope embedded in a walking cane.)  Indeed, this image is quite typical of the candidate image in most of the pigs, regardless of the election year.  Of course, one of the more interesting aspects of this image is that it refers to “Senator” Garfield.  In January of 1880, the Ohio state legislature elected Garfield to the U.S. Senate for the term beginning in March 1881, but he never occupied the seat because he was sworn in as President instead.

ABOVE:  Here is a photo of the same image from the same pen (as the one above it), but in this case the magnification is not as great, so that now you can see how the image looks adhered to the tip of the Stanhope lens.
