The 1930s saw a number of institutional developments that were important for a flourishing national culture. One was the emergence of new printing and publishing operations, such as the Caxton Press in Christchurch. Here, the two founders of the press, Denis Glover (left) and John Drew, are working on a Wharfedale cylinder press, around 1936.
