Oh, Ciara's a sight for sore eyes! She will make for a brilliant housewife one day!
May 1840, Ireland
Men! I'll show them! I am a strong, independent woman! Maybe it's time for me to find my place... somewhere far from this rural setting...
March 1841, Atlantic Ocean
This trip is horrible! I cannot wait to meet the people! After all, the urban work in America is attracting many immigrants like me, I hope everyone is welcoming!
Oh... they don't look so pleased... Their clothes are very different and none look quite like me.... I didn't mean to cause any harm. I thought that the urbanization would decrease prejudice, not make it worse...
September 1841, New York
October 1841, Rhode Island
If I cover my hair and dress like them, I may be accepted. But this house! It's horrible! No one would allow me to move into anywhere else! I hope my first day goes well.
July 1848, Carson's Fine China factory
Over the next few years, the North's industrialization drew many people to America. Eventually, my pay increased enough for me to be comfortable and I was accepted in society! I'm really talented at painting, too!
December 1851, a husband & twins later...
I am very grateful for the urbanization in America. The economy is boosted, I love my job as a working mother, and I have met many types of people. I regret nothing.
