For the Man on the Land: Farmers in the Making
Sunday Times
19 December 1915, p. 9

'Farmers in the making' was published in the 'For the Man on the Land' section. This long article in the Sunday Times in 1915 talks about the history of Fairbridge Farm at Pinjarra, which had started up in 1913. It comes from a time when child migration was seen to be a great thing for WA and a way to improve the life of children who were living in poverty in Britain. The article asks the public to support the scheme through donations. There are photos of young boys working on the farm as well as photos of Kingsley Fairbridge's own children.
