Free farms for the million
ca. 1893

The Department of the Interior and travel companies with a vested interest in settling the Prairies sometimes joined forces to produce posters that promoted western immigration. The one shown here was printed on a lithographic press, a method which allowed bright colours and variations in tone. The poster includes an advertisement for the Canadian Pacific Railway and features vignettes showing five government-run experimental farms.
