Edwin Levick

Mr. Levick took these photographs of Ellis Island, America's great immigration port, between 1902 and 1913.

 Buildings near Ellis Island pier; immigrants 
can be seen with trunks and luggage
 Immigrants undergoing medical examination
 Passed and waiting to be taken off Ellis Island
 Ready for travel and going north, south and west. Immigrants with 
baggage lined up at teller's windows marked money exchange.
 The pens at Ellis Island Registry Room or Great Hall. 
These people have passed the first mental inspection.
