This paper was prepared for and given at the conference ‘Dress in History’ held at Manchester Metropolitan University in July 1997 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Gallery of English Costume at Platt Hall. Its intention was to give the history of the Cunnington Collection and its acquisition by Manchester City Art Galleries, which was the catalyst for the establishment of the Gallery, rather than to be a re-evaluation, in the light of present-day scholarship, of the Cunningtons' collecting and writing.
