Exodus to the Canary Islands

October 22, 1892
The recent cold and unsettled weather is inducing invalids to make an earlier flight than usual from England to more genial climes. On Saturday Messrs. Elder, Dempster and Co’s steamer Bonny sailed from the Mersey to the Canary Islands, Madeira, and West Africa, with a full complement of passengers. Many of them are invalids who cannot bear the severity of the English winter, and who now make Grand Canary their resort during the period.
