Domestic servants wanted poster

‘New Zealand wants domestic servants; good homes, good wages’. Cover of Information about New Zealand for domestic servants issued by the High Commissioner for New Zealand, London, circa 1912.

The prospects for the comely maidservant depicted are attractive. At top, horses pull ploughs across a field with a mountain in the background. At bottom, a servant plays with two children in the grounds of a ground house while their mother watches, idly twirling a parasol.
