095143_pm2_178

This is an original 1911 black and white print ad encouraging travel, tourism and residency in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

The town of Red Deer, located between Calgary and Edmonton, received its name after British traders confused the North American Elk, which was prevalent in the area, with a type of European Red Deer. The town began growing in the early 1900s and was incorporated in 1901, though it only had a population of about 300 people at the time. Red Deer is home to the Central Alberta Theatre, the Central Music Festival, the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, the Ignition Theatre and the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra. Today, the area is known for its oil and natural gas extraction as well as its agricultural industry.
