Invitation from an English travel agency to travel to America, addressed to two residents of Lončarovci and Berkovci, 1904


Anglo-Continentales Reise-Bureau



József Ozvatics from Berkovci and József Novák from Lončarovci decided to emigrate to America in 1904. Even an advance payment was sent to the English travel agency in Rotterdam. József Ozvatics wanted to get back the advance payment because he decided to emigrate to another country. The travel agency sent him a letter on the repayment of the advance and an information letter / invitation to Hungarians preparing for emigrating to America. The Rotterdam-based English Travel Agency's invitation to travel to America contains all the essential information for expats on the trip, eg. about ships, ports, onboard meals, prices, etc.
