Between the Victorian times and the seventies the world changed dramatically. My great grandmother, Selina Ellen Punchard (1879-1978) lived through two world wars, 6 monarchs and saw women go from wearing corsets to crimplene.

‘From Corset to Crimplene’ is a nostalgic look through time. Exploring the 99 years of Selina’s life. Looking at the sheer evolution of world from 1879 to 1978.

"So be my passing!
My task accomplished and the long day done,
My wages taken, and in my heart
Some late lark singing"

- W.E Henley
