Summary

Interior view, a group of seamstresses repair the Star-Spangled Banner in the West Wing of the Smithsonian Institution Building, or Castle.

Subject

Smithsonian Institution Building (Washington, D.C.)

Notes

  • USNM No. 27897
  • The closing of the West Wing during renovation allowed the hall to be used for this purpose. To preserve the flag, a team of seamstresses under the direction of Amelia Bold Fowler used a series of interlocking open buttonhole stitches to secure the tattered flag to a backing of unbleached linen.
