New York: Newport Land Company, 1967. Broadsheet measuring 5 x 10 inches. Fine condition. Fine. Item #List1930
A scarce broadside published by the Newport California Land Company extoling the virtues of California and offering homestead lots to be given away via agents on the East Coast. “In view of its having been selected as the depot and terminus of the great Pacific Railroad,” it states, “we desire to distribute and give away… several homestead lots… if you don’t want oe for yourself, take one for your children.” The verso lists the wages of various professions in California. We find one copy of this broadsheet, at the Huntington, and a similar publication a year earlier entitled “Free Passage to California,” published by the same company, at the Bancroft.
