In 1919 there was little New Zealand recognition of the 150th anniversary of British explorer James Cook's first landing in New Zealand, except in Gisborne. There, this sizeable gathering participated in a commemoration at the site of the memorial marking Cook's landing place. The memorial had been erected in 1906.
