Join Lake Mac Libraries for ‘Our Fabulous Fifties’ – a themed talk about social history and 1950s fashion. Glimpse into the lives of the modern housewives and teenagers of the 1950s, and glamour and style of the career woman of this era through the fashion of the time. See original fashion from The Cavalcade of History and Fashion collection and learn about the lives of the original owners of each piece.

Our Fabulous Fifties is a themed talk and includes examples from the collection with commentary, and items will be distributed amongst the audience, allowing a closer look at the clothing.

Our Fabulous Fifties is part of History illuminated, Lake Macquarie’s inaugural festival of history. The full program is available on the Lake Mac Libraries website.
