These masks were used in Annette Kellerman's lavish productions for the vaudeville stage.⠀

You can see these #masks in the exhibition Million Dollar Mermaid: Annette Kellerman along with stunning #costumes, #memorabilia and movie footage relating to her fascinating life. Born in #Sydney, she became an international celebrity as an #endurance #swimmer, an #entertainer of the #vaudeville stage and a star of American silent films. She played a key role in popularising the one-piece #swimsuit for women.⠀

Happy Easter from everyone at MAAS! Check our last post for our opening hours over the long weekend.⠀

This photograph shows two models wearing Easter #bonnets by New York celebrity #milliner Mr John. The #ducklings in the photo are also adorned with little hats and ribbons. 🐥🐥🐥

In the 1950s and ’60s, Mr John was as famous for his hats as Christian Dior was for haute couture. His creations appeared in Hollywood films with Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Vivien Leigh and Marilyn Monroe. His other notable clients included Wallis Simpson, Mrs Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, Eleanor Roosevelt and Jacqueline Onassis.⠀

Did you know Apple's first product, the Apple Computer I went on sale on this day in 1976?⠀

The Apple I was designed, manufactured and sold by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs and launched the Apple Computer Company. The Apple I is rare - only 200 were made and there are about 50 surviving examples in public and private collections worldwide. This is one of them. You can see it on display at the #PowerhouseMuseum. ⠀
