California Land

Pictured above is an advertisement found in a 1911 edition of The Itawamba County News. Earlier this week I illustrated advertisements from the late 1800's luring area residents to Texas. During the 1911 editions of the local newspaper several advertisements were purchased by the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. Advertising the productivity of fertile lands in California, these advertisements were seen by many farm families throughout Itawamba County.
