From the fabulous bulging coifs of the 1910s to the smart collars of the 1950s, the History Week 2012 exhibition at Campsie Library paints a glorious picture of fashion in Canterbury from the beginnings of the area to World War II. The exhibition uses locally photographed images from the Pictorial Canterbury database to explore changes in clothing and ideas over the industrial era.

This exhibition is in coordination with the History Week 2012 theme of ‘Threads’ focusing on the stories and recollections of history as showcased through clothing, fashion and personal appearance.
