Italian immigrant children...beautiful yet sad...they are so innocent they probably couldnt ever imagine they would working in factories with horrid health conditions to earn some money to help thier familes. Tough times then...

    These were the true immigrants who came to this country and worked to survive. They did not get anything for free unlike immigrants now who live better the us working Americans .

    My great great grandfather is named Thomas J Kelly. He trained as a printer, and emigrated from Ireland to New York in 1867. I know the name is not uncommon, but could it be the same person?

  • Kathy Peet
