Immigration

Ellis Island Inspector

The year is 1910 and the people are coming through Ellis Island by the thousands. Sadly, many of them will be turned away because they either don’t have anyone to receive them in New York or they have some dreaded illness or that very contagious eye disease called trachoma. They long to see the Statue of Liberty welcome them in New York harbor, if they can stand that long Atlantic crossing. Tito has just arrived as a steerage passenger and Nee Nee is the health inspector…I wonder if she’ll pass through the “staircase of separation.” Get on board this steamer and travel with Nee Nee and Tito through Ellis Island.
