  2. Riding Habit - Edith Lavinia Cameron
    1890 - 1899

    Canberra Museum and Gallery

    Riding habit belonging to Edith Lavinia Cameron (nee. Kilby). This ensemble is historically signficant because of its well-documented connection both to the Kilby and Cameron families who were some of the earliest settlers in the Limestone Plains region, later to be incorporated into the Australian Capital Territory.  Despite Edith Cameron owning a riding habit, this is not indicative of superior wealth or status. The Kilbys and Camerons were both of modest means, Robert being a blacksmith before he became a ... more

    1915 - 1925

    National Institute of Dramatic Art

    This classic leather trench coat is typical of those worn by men in the early 20th Century. Trench coats were developed in the first word war to be worn by allied soldiers as a windbreaker and raincoat. They were made of leather or the newly invented cotton gabardine, a tough, tightly woven, water resistant fabric. After the war many veterans kept their trench coats and the style became fashionable with the wider community. This example has the classic features of ... more

  4. Len Forsythe Boat Cloak
    1900

    Rocky Hill War Memorial Museum

    This British Royal Navy Officer's boat cloak dates from c.1900-1939. It is made from fine, worsted, British wool, is hip length and has seams at the sides. We know that the garment was not Australian, as the word 'AUSTRALIA' would be printed on the lower edge of the buttons if that were the case. Boat cloaks were an optional item of dress for navy personnel, worn mainly over full dress, ball dress or mess dress for additional warmth when travelling in an open ship's boat/gig/barge, either between ... more

  9. Ted Docker's Wool Suit and Scarf
    1930 - 1940

    Individual

    Ted Docker's suit is a fine example of Australian menswear from the 1930s. Ted Docker was a founding member of the Communist Party of Australia, formed in 1920. The suit is said to have been made by the Communist Party of Australia's own tailor, Tim Stillman, a suggestion supported by the fact that the suit is professionally made, yet has no label. The suit was donated to the Powerhouse Museum collections by Ted's son John Docker in 1991. Within the ... more

  10. Underwear belonging to Edith Lavinia Cameron
    1890 - 1899

    Canberra Museum and Gallery

    These under garments, worn by Edith Lavinia Cameron, are of considerable historical signficance because of their connection to one of Canberra's most prominent pastoral families (see Item ID 526) and their rarity. Underwear is poorly represented in museum collections, the extensive wear-and-tear caused by frequent use and laundering meant that garments were often thrown away before they could be collected and preserved. The status of underwear as everyday items of clothing, rather than reserved for special occassion also meant they weren't considered ... more

    1920 - 1940

    Museum of the Riverina

    As part of the Nurse Burke Collection, this garment holds historic and aesthetic significance. The long, navy blue cape, Gladstone bag and navy felt hat were powerful symbols of a profession that carried the tools to save the lives of both mother and child. Midwives were well known and respected members of the community, and with their large bag and distinctive uniform, they were instantly recognisable. Nurse Burke's cape, along with its associated collection, enables the museum to explore early ... more
