What’s a good do without a frock?

Still image from ABC video of AWW celebration

To celebrate the digitisation of 50 years of the Australian Women’s Weekly (from 1933 to 1982), the National Library of Australia hosted a frock filled do last Friday.The ABC was on hand to cover the event, which featured NLA staff in vintage clothing and the catering featured recipes made famous by the Women’s Weekly over the years – everything from pigs in blankets to pineapple punch.

Whilst the Library has made a good effort to digitise the entirety of issues of the Australian Women’s Weekly, there are still a few issues which they have been unable to locate. Check the list of missing issues if you think you might be able to help fill in the gaps! In the meantime, take a browse though what’s been captured so far – it’s worth a look for the covers alone.
