Early in the twentieth century they
came to the United States by the untold thousands, immigrants
seeking a better way of life. Most of these people were hard
working but poor, and had hopes of a better life for their
families in the new world.
Here is a small
collection of photographs of these immigrants from the camera of
Joseph Krause. They were taken on the return voyage during one
of his trips to Europe to visit his family before World War One.
The expressions on the faces of these people run the gamut of
human emotion, from joy to terror.
