Collinson & Cunninghame Department Store Jubilee Float

The float is passing the Regent Theatre in Broadway. Joan Klee (pictured on far-side of the float) is dressed in an outfit she created for the Diamond Jubilee Parade in Palmerston North. It caused quite the stir at the time because of its transparent bottom half. She was a window-dresser for the department store Collinson and Cunninghame, thought to be the first qualified female window-dresser in the country. She was instructed in the art of window-dressing by Claude Dixon, who had traveled to the United States to study at the prestigious Macy's Department Store. The float is pictured in front of the Regent Theatre, built in 1930.
