Great Northern Railway leads to a population boom (1958)

Population boom out west

Even James J Hill, the “Empire Builder,” would be astonished at the tempo of latter-day migration to the vast and fertile western region served by his Great Northern Railway.

In the past 17 years, population growth in California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia has been fantastic. More significant to manufacturers looking for new markets or labor resources, it is largely an adult influx. You needn’t wait for this region to develop consumers and workers. They’re grown up… ready for you now!

Booming growth in the Pacific Northwest is creating many new business and industrial opportunities. For information, write E.N. Duncan, Director, Industrial and Agricultural Development Dept., Great Northern Ry., St. Paul 1, Minn.
