New Zealand And South Seas Exhibition (1889)

The New Zealand and South Seas Exhibition was a world's fair held in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1889. It opened on 26 November 1889 and ran until 19 April 1990 with 625000 visits made, and made a profit.

The fair celebrated that country and the South Seas. Exhibitions included New Zealand's Eiffel Tower, a 40 metre high wooden structure based on the Eiffel Tower built by the Austral Otis Elevator Company and used to display their products. The tower was estimated to cost £1200 and included an elevator that travelled about 30 m. A smaller Eiffel Tower, without an elevator, was situated in an adjacent garden area, near the internal courtyard of the exhibition.

    I must down to the seas again for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied.
    John Masefield (1874–1967)

    The hardiest skeptic who has seen a horse broken, a pointer trained, or has visited a menagerie or the exhibition of the Industrious Fleas, will not deny the validity of education. “A boy,” says Plato, “is the most vicious of all beasts;” and in the same spirit the old English poet Gascoigne says, “A boy is better unborn than untaught.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Teasing is universal. Anthropologists have found the same fundamental patterns of teasing among New Zealand aborigine children and inner-city kids on the playgrounds of Philadelphia.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    My course is a firm assertion and maintenance of the rights of the colored people of the South according to the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments, coupled with a readiness to recognize all Southern people, without regard to past political conduct, who will now go with me heartily and in good faith in support of these principles.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
