Reference Number: A-311-1-031

New Zealand Labour Party leaders Walter Nash and Arnold Nordmeyer are at a 'Vote for Labour' sales table, on which are items representing 'black market', 'snoopers', 'controls', 'scarcity', 'restrictions' and acid drops. A figure representing 'deregistererd wharfies' crouches under the table. A man representing the New Zealand voter is turning away in dislike. Implied is his suspicion of the influence on the Labour Party of Alexander Drennan, radical trade unionist, waterfront worker and leading member of the Communist Party of New Zealand who represented the trades council on the national council of the New Zealand Federation of Labour from 1945 to 1949.
