Clothing

Between 1890 and 1940 the home was central to the everyday lives of South Dunedin families. By the end of the period, however, although home life was still dominant, domestic routines had experienced a substantial amount of innovation and change.

People dressed in a manner radically different from that of fifty years previously as can be seen in the Clothing section. This section is made up of four parts each covering a time period starting with 1890 to 1910.

All the items photographed for this section are held by the Otago Settlers Museum. Inspection of the Museum's holdings is available by appointment. Contact the Museum for details.
