A Precursor to the Series?

In what appears to be a precursor to the series shown below, in 1901 the King’s (Queen’s?) Printer published a patriotic postcard encouraging immigration to Canada through the offering of free farms. The card shown above may have been part of a series, however, no other cards have been located at this time.

The card appears to have been printed by the Toronto Litho Company, as it bears similarities in design and printing style, and uses vignettes from the company’s Canadian Cities Series first published in 1898.
