Trying on a bonnet in the Criterion Store
This moving postcard is based on a lithograph by Francois Cogne from the mid-1800s. It is set in the Criterion Store on Main St Sovereign Hill, where a range of 1850s clothing and household linen are exhibited. The presentation is part of a series of interpretive theatre displays at the Sovereign Hill Outdoor Museum.
The Sovereign Hill Outdoor Museum and Gold Museum tell aspects of the story of the gold rushes in central Victoria in the mid-19th century that did so much to change Australia’s development.
