Christchurch peace celebrations booklet

Click on the photograph above to see the pages of a booklet outlining a programme of activities in Christchurch over the three days of peace celebrations, 19-21 July 1919.

Other communities published similar booklets, or brochures outlining the country’s war record. Wellington, for example, produced a ‘National souvenir of the world’s peace 1919’ which included photographs and text illustrating the campaigns the country had been involved in. In the preface the editor, L. S. Fanning, noted that because of the changing of the peace celebrations to 19 July the booklet was a ‘rush order’ and readers might notice defects in it.
