Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa

By: Rodie, Mollie

Date: 1940-41

Description: This costume sketch was originally designed by Mollie Rodie in 1940 for the Red Cross Pageant held in Wellington Town Hall on 18 September 1940. Mollie may have redrawn this sketch for the grand finale of the Victory Queen Carnival in Wellington Town Hall 3-5 June 1941, which featured the same pageant again. Pageants and queen carnivals were popular ways to raise money during World War II (1939-45).
