READERS' FEEDBACK: Immigrant Children's Clothing

From: Janis ivakota@smartneighborhood.net 
DearMYRTLE,
In Johnstown, PA they have a great little museum, the Heritage Discovery Center, which has an exhibit titled "America: Through Immigrant Eyes." It does a wonderful job telling the story of several different immigrants to the Johnstown area. Wish there were more photos online but the first one is of a 12 year old boy:

I also found the below photos doing a Google Advanced Image search for boy immigrant "ellis island":

DearJANIS,
THANK-YOU for your input! The cap on the "12 year old boy" is perfect. You are right, at this point in time, the internet doesn't have much in the way of readable photos about people, more on the buildings at Ellis Island.

Happy family tree climbing!
