Wooden Colonist Car

D.M.L. Farr, J.S. Moir, S.R. Mealing.  Two Democracies.  Toronto:  Ryerson Press, 1963.
No expense spared!  Yeah, right.  Not a pleasant way to travel.  See Colonist Cars.

Below, three ads enticing immigrants to come to CanadaThe top two are taken from William Kilbourn, The Making of the Nation.  A Century of Challenge(The Canadian Centennial Publishing Co. Ltd, 1965; Revised Edition:  McClelland & Stewart, 1973.)  The drawing for the Colonist Cars ad is clearly based on the photo above, with some artistic license.
