Reference Number: DCDL-0004048

Shows a breakfast table at which a man and his wife sit one hundred years ago in 1907. The man is hidden behind the first edition of the Dominion newspaper while the woman, whose comment has not been heard, looks resigned and thinks to herself that 'so it begins'. Today, one hundred years ago The Dominion - now The Dominion Post - rolled off the presses for the first time and wives started being irritated when their husbands didn't hear them because they were immersed in the newspaper.
