Emigration To New York

This image of Irish emigrants waiting to board ships to New York comes from an 1866 edition of Harper's Weekly. There is a large crowd on the docks with many ships moored and ready to bring them across the Atlantic. 


The image was sourced from the Historical Archaeology journal.[1]
