Ngā Taonga Sound Archives - New Zealand votes for Prohibition.

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 10 April 2019

100 years ago today, New Zealand voted to introduce Prohibition – a ban on all alcohol - when a national referendum came out in favour of banning liquor by over 13,000 votes.

In today’s visit to the Sound Archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, Sarah Johnston will play us some memories of that vote – and how it was eventually overturned by soldiers returning from World War I.
