    1882 - 1884

  3. Black dress worn by Mrs Clara Boyton
    1910 - 1912

    Museum of the Riverina

    This dress is of historic significance.

By the second decade of the 20th century (between 1910 and 1915) the differences between Victorian and Edwardian clothing became pronounced. The full flowing skirt of the 19th century evolved into a slim ... more
