The presidential campaign of 1904 was an all-New York contest. The Republicans ran the incumbent Theodore Roosevelt, and the Democrats ran Alton Parker, the Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals.
This wooden cane, with Parker's likeness carved in wood, was made for his supporters. It was purchased by Grumet in a London cane shop.
