An Immigrant arriving in London, 1904.
Engraving showing a Jewish immigrant with his pack on his back, being greeted by a loved one, while an officer from the Jewish shelter looks on, London, 1904. The officers of the shelter tried to ensure that all immigrants went to stay with their family or friends, rather than heading straight for an East End 'sweat shop'. This engraving was part of an article in the Illustrated London News entitled 'The Alien in England: Scenes of the Foreign Invasion of the East End of London'.
