Dark green dress & hat with red roses

In 1959, Emma Knuckey and her business partner Betty Clark closed their Darby Street salon in order to focus on the wholesale side of their business. This dress and hat would have been purchased from one of the many large department stores in New Zealand such as Milne & Choyce, Smith & Caughey's and Kirkcaldie & Stains.
