Object Description
A large black and white photo of a mother and her two children at the union station from David R. Philllips collection. The mom is in darker clothes and is wearing a scarf around her hair. She is holding a baby that is bundled up in old blankets with a scarf around its head as well. Next to the mom and baby is a younger kid sitting on a bag. The kid is wearing a poka dot skirt, tall socks or pants, black boots, a winter coat, scarf, and a hat on its head. The three of them have a lot of dirt on their faces. There is a luggage case with an inspection sticker on it. In the background there are benches at the union station. On the back there is a small card on the back that says it is supposed to show the loneliness of the people needing to immigrate.
