The fascinating story of Alice Anderson and her ‘Garage Girls’ is on the road to the National Motor Museum. Anderson was Australia’s first female garage proprietor and employed an all-female staff with the ambition to turn garage work into a suitable career for women. The exhibition at the National Motor Museum will recreate Anderson’s garage and explore her life through the challenges and obstacles she faced, most predominantly what it was like to be a woman in the automotive industry during the early 20th Century.
