Emigration movements on a larger scale began especially during times of crisis in the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century. One of the main destinations for the Swiss emigrants was the North American continent. Canada played its role as a major destination from the beginning of the 20th century to the 1930's." - Preface. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. An excellent copy.
