Creating a National Spirit
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Creating a National Spirit looks at the ways New Zealanders celebrated their first 100 years: a trade fair in Wellington; commermorations at Waitangi, Akaroa and around the country; a dictionary; an atlas; a series of historical surveys; pictorial surveys; literary, art, music and drama competitions; and a centennial film. It examines in detail the Centennial Exhibition - the architecture, the government courts, overseas displays and 'Funland' - and how the Second World War affected the planned events.
