Agnes Hickman's wedding dress

At the Museum, we do try to change over our textiles as often as possible - at the moment we are putting them out, one costume at a time, for a month. We have just put Agnes Hickman, nee Welfare's wedding dress out.

Hickman and Welfare wedding

Agnes Welfare married Clarence Aubrey Hickman, at St Stephen's Church of England, Richmond, 11 September 1920. They were the parents of Peg Rule, who Stratford has only recently lost after a many, many years in our community. We miss her very much.

Unfortunately we do not have the train to go with the dress, or the beautiful head dress, but it is still fascinating to see the dress, light and simple, that was worn on the day.
