100,000 Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana Farmers Are Looking Towards Arkansas

Very good. Broadsheet, undated, but ca. 1915 (based on contemporary newspaper ads). 20" x 7", printed in red and black on front and all black on verso. Horizontal folding creases, otherwise very good. An attractive promotional piece issued by the New Home Land Company of Little Rock, Arkansas and promoting excursion fares via the Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain railroad and lands along the line of the Rock Island Railway Promotes Arkansas as "The Land of Homes," where "fertile soil, long growing seasons, and mild climate make prosperous farmers, healthy families, and happy homes." The text is targeted at midwesterners, noting that "in Arkansas you can grow the same kind of crops and farm as you do in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana" -- but with a longer growing season and at lower cost. The back includes detailed text relating to 15,000 acres for sale near the new town of Sparkman, along the Rock Island line. Not found in OCLC.
