This photograph taken by Leslie Adkin shows the people of Levin celebrating the Armistice. Declared on 11 November 1918, this marked the end of the hostilities in Europe.
In his diary entry for 13 November, Adkin noted: 'Peace celebrations + a lovely fine day for the rejoicings. Drove down to Levin about 10 am. Town full of people + a large number in fancy dress.'
