This exhibition showcased some of the highlights of the enormous Tinne Collection of clothing.
Whole wardrobes of clothes, as worn by one family over many years, are very rare, especially one of this size which includes more than 700 items.
The Tinne Collection of clothes, worn by a Liverpool lady, Emily Tinne, and her six children between about 1910 and 1940, is just such a rare survivor.
