Farewell Colonialism. The New Zealand International Exhibition Christchurch, 1906-07. by John Mansfield Thomson. Published December 12, 1998 by Dunmore Press.
The New Zealand International Exhibition (the biggest in the country to that time) opened on 1 November 1906 in Hagley Park, Christchurch, New Zealand. Nearly two million people visited the exhibition during the next few months.
The New Zealand International Exhibition was held in Christchurch from 1 November 1906 to 15 April 1907. It was the brainchild of Richard Seddon, Premier of New Zealand from 1893 until his death on 10 June 1906, just a few months before the Exhibition opened. With nearly 2 million visitors, attendance exceeded expectations - New Zealand's total population at the time was less than 1 million.
In this book eleven authorities in their field recreate the atmosphere and spirit of the Exhibition, from Joseph Maddison's white and gold building, to the gardens surrounding it, the impressive Maori Pa, which also hosted visitors from the Pacific Islands, to the comprehensive exhibits of the British Government, Canada and the Australian states. Economic, political and social aspects are discussed, as well as the visual arts, including a large number of paintings and sculptures and the more appealing exhibits of the women's Arts and Crafts movement. Alfred Hill's Orchestra, which played almost every day for the entire six months of the Exhibition, became a showpiece, in its own way as popular as "Wonderful' with its water-chute, helter-skelter and spaceship. Perhaps the most poignant contributions to this volume are those of the Maori visitors, given here in the original language and in translation.
As the first contemporary book to describe a New Zealand exhibition in depth, this book is a record of a historical event and an inspiring contribution to our social history.
