The Pointon Collection, 68 McKinstry Avenue, Te Ore Ore, Masterton


All Ages

The Pointon Collection of Cars & Costume shows a stunning range of 1950's clothing for all those special events through the festive season.

In the 1950's women wore special clothes for every occasion and they changed into these clothes accordingly. There were sunfrocks, shorts, swimsuits & sports gear for a day at the beach or the park. For the school social a new dress was "run up" by Mum on the old "Singer". A trendy rock'n'roll dress complete with layers of stiff petticoats was desirable so you could impress everyone on the dance floor.

The smart set wore beautifully tailored dresses, often complete with a matching jacket or coat, to the races, a wedding or out for "cocktails". And of course a gorgeous ball gown was essential for that very special function.

Even just to go "up town" on Friday night everyone would dress to impress - even in Masterton! Relive the nostalgia of the 1950's with a visit to The Pointon Collection this summer. The clothes are gorgeous, beautiful fabrics and flattering styles.

Of course we have cars too, many of them driven on our roads throughout the '50's. Plus there's an amazing collection of automobilia to keep the men in the family happy. And then there is the garden... The Pointon Collection is more than just a car museum!

The Pointon Collection is open most days 10am to 4pm - phone Gaye 06 3786710 to check. Charges apply - no eftpos.

This display runs through until Sunday February 10th 2019.
