Emigrate: A found poem and photograph


Emigrate

Go in the Spring and take up a
Free Farm of 160 Acres
in Western Canada.

(close to Schools, Churches,
Railways and Markets)

The Richest Land on Earth.
The best climate.
The fullest enjoyment of health.

Men of 18 years and over get a Homestead, 160 Acres
Free.
Railways spreading out in every Direction.

Special Excursions will leave Detroit, Mich.
in March, April and May, 1900

Get in before the Rush,
secure a Free Homestead
and become
independent.

  1. If I had hair on my back it would be standing on end reading that photo and looking at those words. I’d also have a more hirsute from behind when shirtless, however that is beside the point.

    I love you and your blog, Megan.
