'Daltons Weekly House and Apartment Advertiser', which this leaflet is advertising, specialised in selling properties and businesses. In 1882 the passing of the 'Married Women's Property Act' allowed women to retain ownership of property that they had received as a gift from a parent. Prior to this everything would have automatically become the property of her husband. By 1893 women gained total control of property of all kind that they owned at marriage or that they acquired after marriage.
