Workers in Devonport, Auckland, load food for Finsbury in Britain in January 1948. Compared with England, which suffered considerable economic damage from bombing during the war, New Zealand's economy emerged from the war in a relatively strong position. Donated food was one way that people in New Zealand could assist their relations in the United Kingdom. In the background of the photo is Devonport's First World War memorial.
