At Glen Innes, which ends this week, there’s something to be missed: a captivating fashion underwear parade – apparel for the region where your great-grandparents and outsiders may dress.
It will include wholesale sexy corsets, petticoats – and in the Victorian era of New England, the ladies behind the show call it “legless pants.”
Jenny Anderson and Jenny Sloman of Glen Ines Historical House put a piece of clothing weighing about a kilogram, an 18-inch waistline dress and a pair of underpants ) Put together to show the ladies in nature but they wore layers of skirts and petticoats.
Jenny Anderson explains that wealthy Victorian women are wearing thick clothes before etiquette.
She said: “This is a pair of shorts without crutches.” “They do not have a crutch, because if you feel ‘a lot of skirts’, standing up is much easier when Nature calls and does not try to sit down.”
So now you know.
The show will feature a show featuring local women’s fashion shows – except for an 18-inch wholesale sexy corsets dress that has a waistline, they simply can not find a sufficiently thin model.
The entire exhibit is a very attractive perspective on how fashion is changing and how women’s burdens change – literally, that’s the burden on women because some clothing can not imagine wearing comfortable clothes.
The clothes come from Newstead between Glen Innes and Inverell. They were left in the trunk and found that some of the property was sold.
Finally, they were taken to the Museum of History in Glens, throwing a gleam of excitement in the late 19th century in New England’s sexy ladies.
They seem to have come out of the Anderson family who migrated from Scotland, perhaps descendants of Mary Sinclair, born in 1818 in Muckairn, Scotland.
According to a genealogical website, “In 1839 she married Colin Alexander Anderson and shortly after they married, the couple arrived in Australia on a” great “sailing trip to Sydney in December 1839 By 1841 they were in New South Wales, New North.
After her husband’s death in 1852, Mary Anderson left seven children and ran Newstead’s estate.
Sadly, her two daughters, Mary (1840-1853) and Margaret (1845-1853), died of scarlet fever that year, and in August 1854 Mary and her five surviving children drove to the United Kingdom, Left her cousin Charles Campbell in charge of Newstead.
She spent the rest of her life between New England and Old England and Scotland. But she died here in 1857, at the age of 57, and was buried in the Newstead cemetery.
