U.S. Immigration 1908

From the Saturday Globe with color cartoons on the immigration issue, Utica, NY, 18 April 1908.

The image above by W.A. Carson, is dated 1908 and titled “Columbia aroused at last! She proposes to scourge the anarchist brood from her shores.” A whip-wielding Lady Liberty chases an angry-looking group of immigrants back to Europe. They leave behind bombs and pistols as they flee, though they retain their stilettos and red flag.
