Handbook of Information for Intending Settlers

It's the 1910s and you're a British subject living in England, Scotland, India or South Africa. While reading the newspaper you notice an advertisement for Ready Made Farms in Western Australia.

The farms sound like a good opportunity so you make enquiries by letter with the Midland Railway Company in London, England. The company kindly reply and send you the below Handbook of Information for Intending Settlers.

Take a look through the full handbook on our website - it's some impressive marketing! Would it have been enough to entice you to put down a deposit and move your family across the world?
