New Brighton Catholic School Early Canterbury
Hi and welcome to our web page about Early Canterbury clothes.
We discovered that the Early Canterbury clothes were very different to our clothes now because of all the layers, different colours and materials used.
In these photos you can see some of the different clothes that the people might have worn all those years ago and also a photo of some of our class dressed up on our visit to Northbrook Museum in Rangiora
Q. How do you compare the clothes of today to the clothes of Early Canterbury?

We have closets filled with clothes but back then they only had two outfits. One for during the week and the other was for Sundays and special occasions where they did not play or run around.
