Emigrant, 1880

From the second half of the 18th century Highland landowners had viewed assisted emigration as the preferred solution to the problem of over-population and poverty on their estates. Even in the late 19th century, when the plight of the Highland population became a national issue, economic interventionism took the form of state-assisted emigration, as recommended in the report of the Napier Commission in 1884
