The Dominion of New Zealand: Dominion Day lights

In celebration of Dominion Day part of the exterior of Government Buildings in Wellington was festooned with electric lights. Electric lighting was still a relatively new phenomenon and had rarely been used to illuminate buildings. The display was therefore both a celebration of New Zealand's new status and an expression of its modernity.
