Vintage Map Ellis Island Immigrants
Photograph - Digital Print
This is a vintage map of New York City with vintage photos of Ellis Island and two immigrants. The map dates from the late 1800's, the photos from around 1905-1915. Two children immigrants have just arrived at Ellis Island. Likely they spoke no English and there are numbers pinned to their clothing. They look exhausted and overwhelmed, but it looks like the girl has a balloon and, like children everywhere, will soon be in the fun of it.
