Notes
Content : Titles supplied by "A calendar of the William Williams collection of photographs of Ellis Island."

Content : Originally part of the William Williams Collection; transferred to the Milstein Division of US, Local History and Genealogy; later transferred to the Photography Collection.

Content: "Lawns and hedges after one year's growth," according to Commissioner Williams (Vol. I, p. 45 front, Williams scrapbooks); the date is therefore c. 1903. The absence of both the Singer Building (completed 1908) and the Woolworth Building (completed 1913) from the skyline further verifies the early date of the photograph.
