Description
Looking down from the Cathedral steps along Trafalgar Street in Nelson at the crowds and parade for the peace celebrations at the end of World War I. In the foreground is a military brass band, followed by children and then ranks of soldiers. Some people have taken up positions at the windows and enclosed verandahs above shops.
