Hello, my name is Fayard. I am trying to leave Jamaica to move to the United States because jobs are scarce here at home.
For immigrants to get to America they needed to pass Ellis island. They needed to get questioned and examined before passing.
What is your occupation? What country are you from? How much money do you have with you? What is the condition of your health?
I passed the inspection, now it is time to work here in America!
Living here is a struggle. There is crime and fires. But at least i will have job.
Because of crime and fires, the city needed police. And to decrease fires, wood was replaced with brick and they had a professional fire department.
Transportation was another problem, because of this the city needed street cars and electric subways.
Looks like im taking the street car to work..
This is a weird looking streetcar.
Living and working here in America is not the easiest or best, but i am making money and i am getting used to everything. Work conditions are getting better and i am looking forward to living a new life here.
