Celebrating Art Deco, The Pointon Collection shows original 1940's clothes and of course the wonderful cars of the Art Dec era.

With bathing belles in those 'very becoming' woollen bathing costumes, to smart dresses to wear shopping or to Church on Sunday. We have the "New Look" in cocktail wear and a wonderfully elegant costume a local bride wore in 1946.

Then there's the Debutante gowns of lace or georgette, and evening gowns with sequins or embroidered decoration. The 1940's was an era of innovative styles.

Come and check them out - we are open 10am to 4pm most days.

Final day for this 1940's display is Saturday 28th April 2018. Charges apply. No eftpos. Groups welcome by appointment.
