Western Canada the new Eldorado
ca. 1908-1918

This poster compares Canada's "Last Best West" to the American New Eldorado. The poster features images of farmlands, crops, and homesteads that were available to prospective settlers. The images are set in vignettes decorated with strands of wheat and maple leaves (a tree that is not native to western Canada). The accompanying text attempts to dissipate potential fears of a "wild" west.
