When the Second World War ended, New Zealanders' hopes for the future were high. On the one hand they wanted to recreate aspects of the country they had known before the war - the loyal outpost of the British Empire; on the other, they wanted to ensure that the privations of the Depression and wartime shortages would never recur. This work attempts to illustrate how New Zealand changed from being a dependent British colony to being an independent nation and in the process, altered beyond recognition.
