This poster from the 1940s illustrates New Zealand’s connection with the British Empire, and the role agriculture played in the war effort. It depicts dairy cattle and a dairy factory, with Mt Taranaki (Egmont) in the background. From the outset of the refrigerated shipping trade, New Zealand was often referred to as ‘Britain’s farm’.
