A terrific pair of booklets advertising assisted passages to Queensland in Australia for Agriculturists and their families or farmers as we know them now and female domestic servants between 17 and 35 years of age

Issued by the Agent General for Queensland 409 & 410 Strand London they were aiming to increase the female population of Queensland, where men far outnumbered ladies

They wanted hard working and clean and sober people for both domestic sernat roles and farmers

I imagine with the outbreak of the Great War in August, take-up might have been a little more conservative than would have been expected, as the leaflets were only issued in May and the outbreak of the war was in August 1914

The larger item measures 10 inches by 7 1/2 inches and the smaller 7 3/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches.

The condition is good although the smaller booklet has makrs throughout

They would be a super addition to any collection, excellent display or practical pieces, or authentic period props.

Thanks for looking and please cast a glance at my other vintage and historical items.
