I have been out of blogging for awhile, but am back.
These photos of the statue of Annie Moore, the first Irish immigrant registered at Ellis Island in New York. She left Ireland with her two brothers on the ship Nevada in 1891. They and 148 other passengers spent 12 days at sea and arrived on December 31, 1891. She was the first person registered at the new Ellis Island facility on January 1, 1892. She is believed to have been 17 at the time. This statue is located at the Cobh Heritage Center in Cobh, Ireland.
Beautiful pictures. It’s interesting, and a little sad considering the history of why so many had to leave during that time (and because of the haunting low hanging clouds that you majestically captured) that there is a statue for someone for leaving the country…
Indeed, Kurt. It’s sad that so many had to leave, just to survive.
