This corset was unsold stock from a general store in Braidwood, which was operated by Mr Toffaha from about 1920 until 1970 when it was disbanded
Mr Toffaha's daughter Mrs Lutvey (nee Toffaha) took over the unsold stock from him when his store was disbanded and it became stock for her business, Lutvey's Ladies Wear, in Ipswich.
