Immigrants at Ellis Island, 1906. First we see people who have already gone through immigration and are now in front of building, in line to leave island. Then another group arrives carrying suitcases trunks bundles; a uniformed official directs them from the dock toward the Depot. There are people of various ages classes & European nationalities, carrying all sorts of baggage. An interesting little glimpse: In BG at left there are 2 young children, a boy and a girl, who seem to have hurried ahead on their own; they stand looking back toward the dock watching the line pass by; finally they go running back toward the dock, having spotted either their family or their luggage. We catch another glimpse of them in the line, now carrying baggage (the boy carries a heavy suitcase on his back and the girl holds a bag in her arms).
