Storyboard Text

  • I can't stay here anymore...
  • Religious persecution, rising population, and the spread of reform and revolt had pushed many Italians out of their homes. Much like our sad buddy, Lorenzo... a resident here.
  • Italians who sought refuge in the US went through Ellis Island; which is located in New York Harbor.  Immigrants took a physical examination, and if they contained any diseases, they were sent home.  They were then questioned to determine if they passed legal requirements to be/work in America.
  • Lorenzo become a teacher... where he met a variety of other people.  He had met Lisa, another teacher, who was upset that her family couldn't enter due to the Chinese Exclusion Act; which banned entry to Chinese citizens who weren't students, teachers, merchants tourists, or government officials.
  • It's okay... we're here for you.
  • It hadn't stopped there... Lorenzo had also heard that a new arrangement had been made.  The Gentlemen's Agreement had made a deal with Japan that there would be a limit of emigration of unskilled workers to the United States in exchange for the repeal of the San Francisco segregation order.
  • Urbanization had continued to start problems; fire's had spread and there were multiple sanitation problems (the streets were nowhere near clean).
  • Fortunately, sewer lines and sanitation departments were created.  Along with fire hydrants and full time professional fire departments.  So, all ended well and Lorenzo had smiled now that he walked along a clean path.
