Spring Lecture Series - Life and Fashion Between the World Wars

The interwar period was a time of significant change, when automobiles, electricity and radio became commonplace, but the indulgent era was followed by unprecedented economic downturn. This presentation by Wendy Tomlinson explores why the 1920s roared, why the 1930s were so dirty, and the clothes people wore.

A self-described 'history nerd' Wendy Tomlinson worked in museums for more than a decade, and began sharing her passion for history as an educator and lecturer about twenty years ago. Her popular presentations utilize a personal collection of over 300 antique textiles. Wendy makes her home in Owen Sound, with her teenaged daughter and a menagerie of pets.

This presentation is part of our Spring Lecture Series taking place on Tuesday afternoons following March Break, March 24 through April 14, in our Theatre. Talks take place at 1:00 p.m. and are repeated at 2:30 p.m. Complimentary refreshments following each talk. Free with admission. Members free as always.
