Work and Wear: A Peek into the Maritime Museum of BC's Textile Collection
Uniforms--in this case, naval uniforms and issued kit--create a shared sense of identity among groups of people. But, their wearers are not invisible! We find clues and stories in the seams, stamps, damage, repairs, and decorations on everyday workwear. This virtual exhibit is a look at four workwear outfits, all assembled from textile objects in the Maritime Museum of BC's collection. Up close; inside; and very personal.
