  1. Diver's suit and equipment
    1914 - 1952

    Jervis Bay Maritime Museum (formerly Lady Denman Heritage Complex)

    This dress and apparatus are representative of the traditional diver's equipment in use from the early 1830s until the 1960s. It is also representative of a past era in the history of oyster farming, an industry that is still important to the economy of the New South Wales South Coast. It is unusual to have such a complete set of diver's equipment in relatively good condition and with such strong provenance covering three generations. more

  2. Ute Bierbaumer's lederhosen
    1940 - 1945

    Albury Library Museum

    These lederhosen were owned and worn by Ute Bierbaumer during her stay at the Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre. She and her family arrived at Bonegilla in the 1950s and stayed for several years. The lederhosen are part of the Bonegilla Collection, a significant collection of over 1,400 pieces held at the Albury Library Museum.

  3. 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

  4. Cape belonging to Riverina midwife, Nurse Catherine Burke.
    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

Two are labelled Lowes Ltd, the third has either been copied from the Lowes suits or was made elsewhere and used as a pattern for the Lowes suits.These suits are excellent and complete examples of men's business suits from the 1950s. The menswear industry was and remains a fairly staid and traditional one with the basic shape of the business suit remaining unchanged for decades - as demonstrated ... more

  6. Margaret White's WRANS uniforms
    1968 - 1972

    Australian National Maritime Museum

    These Women’s Royal Australian Naval Service uniforms, issued to Margaret Warene White during her service with the Royal Australian Navy, are a near-complete record of training and subsequent issued dress, work and physical training uniforms as well as cash allowance-purchased clothing of the late 1960s-early 1970s. Material relating to female service within the RAN has not been collected to any great extent by cultural institutions within Australia, and so this is a rare and special collection with an impressive provenance. ... more

  7. Woman's dust coat dress
    1880 - 1890

    Gulgong Pioneers Museum

    This is an important example of occupational or travel dress. Unostenatious garments, such as this one, can be overlooked in collections, but this garment is quite rare. Sometimes called a 'duster' they are quite common in American mail order catalogues. They were worn over smart clothes to protect from dust or weather. The fastening right down the front, to the absolute bottom of the hem, suggests the wearer intended to eliminate any speck of dust collecting on her more expensive ... more

  10. 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
