  1. Queensland Police Commissioner's Dress Tunic
    1927 - 1943

    Queensland Police Museum

    The Queensland Police Commissioner's tunic manufactured between 1927 and 1943 represents an important era in the history of the Queensland Police. The owner of this tunic is most likely to have been Cecil James Carroll, Commissioner of Police between 1934 and 1949. The braided decorations, trimmings and the wool fabric all indicate this tunic was an elaborate garment, worn by someone of a high rank and mostly for ceremonial purposes. It was manufactured by an experienced tailor in the Brisbane City who created a military-style uniform ... more

  2. Queensland Police Commissioner's Uniform 1969-1970
    1969 - 1970

    Queensland Police Museum

    Police Comissioner Norwin William Bauer's uniform is of historical significance because he was Commisioner of the Queensland Police Force during the turbulent years of 1969-1970 when Joh Bjelke-Petersen became Premier and anti-Vietnam demonstrations were prominent. Bauer and Bjelke-Petersen had to work closely because the Premier was also the Minister in charge of Police. In Brisbane and other Queeensland cities, like many parts of the world, street demonstrations were passionate and often unruly. The demonstrators marched without permits, or if ... more

  3. Privy Councillor's uniform of Joseph Cook, Prime Minister
    1914

    Parramatta Heritage Centre

    This uniform and insignia are historically significant because they are a wonderful example of quite a rare and important costume in early Australian culture. The insignia is especially rare, as the number presented every year are limited and recipients after 1948 have to return the insignia to the British Crown upon their deaths. The fact that the uniform belongs to Joseph Cook also makes it significant. Cook was voted in as the MP for Hartley in the New South Wales ... more

  4. Dress made by Finney Isles & Co. Limited
    1905 - 1915

    Port Macquarie Historical Society

    This elegant dress with its elaborately decorated bodice and stylish skirt trim was made by Queensland department store, Finney Isles & Co Limited. The store became a limited company in February 1905 which helps to date this garment by its maker's label. The dress was worn by Martha Alice Gilmore (nee Stephen) [d1934]. Martha's husband Thomas Ferdinand Gilmore [1862-1913] was the Manager of Finney Isles Murwillumbah store from its opening in 1904 until his death by self administered poison in 1913. Their daughter Maud Mary [1886-1967] also worked at the store until her marriage to Edward Uptin in 1911. The Murwillumbah store was burnt down during a large fire in the town in 1907 but rebuilt and reopened in 1908. Perhaps this dress was worn at a celebratory function or ball to mark the town's rebuilding. The dress has many features of late Victorian dress, including its corseting and complex hook and eye fastenings to the bodice. The bodice is beautifully decorated with a combination of lace, net, braid, ribbon, tassels and embroidered buttons. These trims are used again on the skirt. The dress has been expertly sewn. All seams are cleanly finished, all linings intact and nothing out of place. This is consistent with a newspaper article describing the Finney Isles women's work room in 1882; "...where numerous girls were sitting at their sewing machines, working swiftly, deftly and noiselessly, except for the click of the needles as the fabrics sped beneath them...". The silk satin fabric used is starting to show signs of wear but is still in good condition evidencing the quality of the fabric which was something the company advertised. This dress ... more

    Queensland Police Museum

    This complete uniform is a significant piece in the Queensland Police Museum collection as there were only five female sergeants between 1965 and 1970.

This was the first step towards equality in the Queensland Police Force.  The long-sleeve blouse, tunic, skirt and hat are all in either excellent or good condition. There is ... more
