Museum of Lakeland Life



    In the first half of a year celebrating our fashion collection this display is a rare opportunity to view our twentieth century pieces. Edwardian rigidness soon gave way to the free and playful styles of the 1920s. Chart the collection from the muted tones of the post war era to the vibrant colour of the 1960s and 70s.

    As well as the more formal elements of the collection take a look at some of our quirkier items including feather boas, Donut shoes and historic fancy dress.
