  2. Blacker Twins' purple blouses
    1905 - 1912

    Quirindi and District Historical Society

    Historic, aesthetic and social significance because of the rarity of a pair of garments worn by twins. The different trimmings on the blouses indicates that the women were conscious of a need to tell them apart. They are associated with a family with a long connection with the Quirindi district with descendants who are still in the Quirindi community. These attractive blouses were for fashionable occasions. The embroidered floral trim shows it was for special occasions and not for every ... more

    1892

    Quirindi and District Historical Society

    This outfit is significant in several categories - historic, aesthetic, social and spiritual: also its rarity and association with prominent Quirindi families.

This beautifully embroidered christening gown, with shawl and bonnet is believed to be the christening robe of Mary Elizabeth Cobbett. Mary was born at Balmoral, New South Wales on November 24th 1892, ... more

  5. Cooke wedding dress
    1883

    Alstonville Plateau Historical Society Inc

    While wedding gowns are not rare in museums, this gown has such good provenance that it is significant. There is much documentation associated with this gown and its maker, Isabella Cooke. The APHS has a very comprehensive collection of Isabella's handiwork illustrating her fine needlework, sewing, quilting, crochet, tatting and embroidery. Four years after her marriage she travelled to the north coast, first of all settling in Bexhill, then Corndale and finally retiring with her husband to Alstonville. Her husband, ... more

  6. Three piece striped silk outfit
    1870 - 1880

    Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery and Museum

    This garment is significant as it is part of 100 piece collection of clothes that belonged to the Bayldon family who were important members of Coffs Harbour society from 1870 to the present day. The Bayldons were a very important family in the history of the Sawtell and Toormina region of New South Wales, just South of Coffs Harbour and this is remembered even today. When the local council established a new housing estate near Sawtell it was called Bayldon ... more

  7. Child's dance costume worn by Pauline Harvey
    1935 - 1940

    Museum of the Riverina

    Pauline Harvey's dance costume is of historic significance. It is a good example of a World War II stage costume; quickly and crudely made from whatever fabrics were available, and probably not intended to last for a long time - there being no necessity for it to survive the wear and tear of everyday living. During her expansive career, Pauline has had numerous costumes, many made either by her mother, or herself. During (or immediately following) the War, Pauline had ... more

  8. Black dress worn by Mrs Jane Crain
    1902 - 1910

    Museum of the Riverina

    This black dress worn by 'Granny' Jane Crain can be viewed as an example of epitomising the hard-working, (often) tough, and industrious pioneering women who helped shape the fledgling township of Wagga Wagga (and the Riverina district). When properly fitted on a mannequin, it belies some of the character of the wearer. It is easy to imagine 'Granny' Crain as being a lady of small stature, with a ramrod straight back, being both upright and forthright in character and bearing. ... more

  9. Possum skin cloak
    1839 - 1840

    Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

    This cloak is extremely significant, as it is an extremely rare historical example of an element of the clothing of Indigenous people in South Eastern Australia that has continued importance today. There are many reasons why the majority of skin cloaks did not survive to the present day. One of these reasons was because when a person died all their belongings were disposed of, also some people were wrapped in their skin cloaks after their death. During the early colonial ... more

  10. Marjorie Boyling WAAAF uniform
    1943 - 1944

    Evans Head Living Museum Inc.

    This winter WAAAF (Women's Auxilliary Australian Airforce) dress uniform from 1943/4 is complete and in pristine condition. Marjorie Boyling, who owned it, would have looked extremely attractive in this smartly tailored suit. Her gift is an important addition to the WWII collection at Evans Head Living Museum which tells the bittersweet story of the war and the functioning airforce base and training facility there. Government uniforms are well marked with labels and handwritten information and we are able to positively ... more

  11. Three piece Rundles suit worn by Lawrence Watkins
    1931

    Newcastle Museum

    Historic and Social. The social aspect of significance for this suit is twofold. Firstly, it was manufactured by Rundles, an iconic Newcastle business, now in its 180th year of operation. Furthermore, the suit was purchased to be worn to Eisteddfods, which were surely a highlight of a town or city's social calendar, especially during the dark years of the Great Depression. Due to very high levels of Welsh mining migration to Newcastle and the Hunter during the 19th and early ... more
