Notes
Content: Ezra Meeker, in covered wagon, publicizes his effort to preserve the Oregon Trail.
Content: "Millions of immigrants will recognize this photograph illustrating their first introduction to the soil of the great republic. Here in former days all immigrants were landed amid scenes of confusion and babel of tongues that will long be remembered. Now the scene has changed and an orderly and less confusing disposal of the immigrants is made at Ellis Island, and the Barge office and Castle Garden, the walls of which bore mute witness of the great triumphal entry of Jenny Lind, and the reception of so many great visitors, now has assumed the cares of the inhabitants of the deep and does duty as a public aquarium where millions are instructed and amused annually. On Battery Park, New York."--printed on verso.
