ELLIS ISLAND pt2

I came across these movie shorts, filmed in the early 1900s. I thought some of you might like to check them out! :)

 

Arrival of emigrants [i.e. immigrants], Ellis Island, 1906

Depicts scenes at the Immigration Depot and a nearby dock on Ellis Island. Appears to show, first, a group of immigrants lined up to board a vessel leaving the island, then another group arriving at the island and being directed off of the dock and into the Depot by a uniformed official.

Emigrants [i.e. immigrants] landing at Ellis Island, 1903

The film opens with a view of the steam ferryboat “William Myers,” laden with passengers, approaching a dock at the Ellis Island Immigration Station. The vessel is docked, the gangway is placed, and the immigrant passengers are seen coming up the gangway and onto the dock, where they cross in front of the camera.
