Exhibition and book captions read - By the mid-1890s New Zealand's economy was picking up strongly to the discomfort of both the opposition press at home and the politicians in Victoria, who were staunch supporters of federation [with Australia]. The latter feared that New Zealand's growing prosperity and independence might slow progress towards federation.
