"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"


Emma Lazarus, 1883

Selected Images of Ellis Island and Immigration, ca. 1880-1920
From the Collections of the Library of Congress



These images were selected to meet requests regularly received by the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. Although the Prints and Photographs Division has a considerable number of images identified as showing members of immigrant groups, the images seldom come with detailed information about the ethnicity or nationality of the people depicted, their names, or details about their arrival.
The images are presented for educational and research purposes. The Library of Congress is unaware of any restrictions on the use of the images. However, patrons who plan to publish or otherwise distribute any of the images should be aware that determination regarding the appropriate use of an image ultimately rests with the patron. The Library generally does not own rights to material in its collections. Therefore, it does not charge permission fees for use of such material and cannot give or deny permission for use of the images. For further information, see "Copyright and Other Restrictions ... Sources for Information"

Photographic copies of the images may be ordered through the Library of Congress Photoduplication Service.

References to additional images on this subject can be found in the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog.
