              WHEN CRINOLINES, BUSTLES AND OSTRICH FEATHERS WERE THE HEIGHT OF COLONIAL FASHION. This richly illustrated and lively social history explores the creation, consumption and spectacle of fashionable dress in Aotearoa New Zealand from 1840 to the early 1900s. Dressmakers were essent...ial contributors to the development of New Zealand, and as a colonial outpost of the British Empire, New Zealands 19th century dress culture was heavily shaped by international trends. Interactions with Maori, the demands of settler lifestyle and the countrys geography all added another layer. Dressed teems with the fascinating, busy lives of early businesswomen, society women and civic figures. Featuring dresses and fashionable accessories from museums throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and including over 270 images, this major book makes a significant contribution to histories of colonial dress.

              Berry Boys: Portraits of First World War Soldiers and Families (Hardback)

              By Fitzgerald, Michael; Regnault, Claire

              "A surprise discovery in the 1980s unearthed the remarkable early twentieth century photographs of Berry & Co., now held in Te Papa's collection. Amongst the thousands of mystery images are more than a hundred of ordinary First World War servicemen, taken directly before the men ...left to fight. But who were they? a heartfelt public response has helped to reunite many soldiers with their identities, and careful research has brought more to light." -- Publisher's information.
