The International Land and Investment Co's enticement, 1911
The invitation to join the excursion to the Gulf Coast Country
Or perhaps a piece of rice land in Jennings, Louisiana is more to your liking...
Land companies used postcards as a marketing tool in the early 1900s to promote land sales, typically in the Gulf Coast states. The International Land and Investment Co,. promotes an excursion for punters to the Gulf Coast in its 1911 postcard (top two views). If International Land's deal is not sweet enough for you, perhaps some nice rice land in Jennings, Louisiana may attract your dollars to start your investment in agricultural real estate. The Jennings card is a little earlier, postmarked 1907 and is not a land company promotion card. Little did they know Federal subsidies would be along in a couple of decades to be capitalized into the land's value.
