Kitsnaps: Annie Moore

Annie Moore
Annie Moore
This statue of Annie Moore and her brothers Phillip and Anthony look west at Cobh Harbour, from whence so many Irish left for America. Annie was the first immigrant processed at the newly opened Ellis Island on January 1, 1892, the same facility my own grandfather passed through almost thirty-five years later.

There’s a statue of Annie Moore at Ellis Island, too, looking eastward toward Ireland. I’d love to get a picture of that statue, too, but it wouldn’t be as spectacular as this one, by simple dint of being indoors and therefore impossible to silhouette like this.

This is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. A complete success, as far as I’m concerned. :)
