160 Acres Free! Emigration to Canada - advert from the North Down Herald, 1914.


This advert caught my eye on a recent trip to the Newspaper Library in Belfast. Because it uses the same form of words that my great-uncle John used in his first letter home after emigrating to Canada in the 1920s. (see previous blog post here). I wonder if he was deliberately referring to a similar advert which had caught his eye back then?
