Dominion Day celebrations, 1908

Dominion Day celebrations, 1908

This view of the 1908 Dominion Day celebrations at the Basin Reserve, Wellington, shows a crowd of people waving flags, rows of soldiers, and spectators in the foreground.

Dominion Day, held on 26 September, never became an established fixture in the New Zealand holiday calendar. Wellington was one of the few places that kept up ceremonies after 1907.
