COSTUMES AND TEXTILE COLLECTIONS

The Swan Guildford Historical Society has a wonderful collection of vintage costumes and textiles from yesteryear.  Some items date from the 19th Century, evoking days gone by when ladies never showed enough skin to get sunburned, right through to more modern days.  As well as clothing, the collection includes accessories such as hats, hat boxes, shoes, lace, hand made embroidered stockings, fans, shawls, undergarments and military uniforms.

Selected costumes and accessories from Swan Guildford Historical Society’s collection are displayed in a temperature controlled museum space.  Located within  the Swan Valley Visitor Centre building, admission to this exhibition is FREE.  Opening hours are 9AM to 4PM daily.

Here are some examples of costumes from our collection.
