About this memory

This stunning dress was loaned by Susan and Christine Cameron to a recent heritage exhibition about the Assembly Rooms.
It was worn by their mother, Connie, at The Firemens' Ball held at the Assembly Rooms in the late 1950s.
The dress did, however, have another life. It was actually adapted by Mrs Cameron from her wedding gown - the collar and sleeves were removed and the white silk dyed a dramatic vermillion in honour of the ball.
