Canterbury Museum Period Costume Section

I got to wander around the Canterbury Museum yesterday with my photo club – snapping away at all of the fascinating things on display (yes you can take photos). By far the most interesting for me (for photographs) was the costume room – which has a stunning Regency chandelier from 1811. On display are period costumes from the early settlers of New Zealand up to the 1950’s. Definitely a great place to be on a cold, wet, Canterbury Sunday! If it has been years since you have been to the museum – then make the effort for a visit, there is something for everyone and excellent coffee in the cafe!

    Fun to see the lovely old gowns! I like your shot of the museum inside!

    Funny how you can live in the same city for years and then see something you’ve seen a hundred times before in a new light 🙂
