On this day: land for sale in Australia

This 1884 poster from the Australian coastal colony of Queensland advertises a land sale in the northern town of Townsville on the 6th of November.

Eighteen years earlier the area had been declared a municipality, and two years before this sale took place the area’s population was 4000.
