Immigrant Kids

by Russell Freedman

Text and contemporary photographs chronicle the life of immigrant children at home, school, work, and play during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Praise for Immigrant Kids

"A refreshingly un-woeful introduction to the experience of being a young urban immigrant around the turn of the century... [P]hotos make the scenes real and recollections of immigrant childhoods give them a personal dimension... Concise, graphic, and designed in every respect to catch and hold the reader's interest." — Kirkus Reviews
