|Context||Photographers chronicled the migration to the United States on board ships.|
|Purpose||To show the journey to the United States|
Between 1870 and 1920, the United States witnessed migration on an unprecedented scale. New shipping lines, faster passage, and cheaper fares brought immigrants to the United States and other countries such as Argentina, Australia, and Canada. These photographs depict the large numbers of immigrants who made the journey, the travel conditions, and their arrival.
