May’s Speakers, Sue & Jan, who volunteer in the Drapers Shop at Preston Park, gave a most informative talk on Victorian clothing.

Dressed in Victorian fashions they had made themselves, they ‘dressed’ a mannequin called Vicky - beginning with her nightwear, they added the layers until we had a fully dressed Victorian lady in mourning attire.

Sue and Jan showed an impressive array of knowledge and gave us a detailed insight into Victorian life.
