Digital ID: 417071. Group photograph captioned 'Hungarian Gypsies all of whom were deported' in The New York Times, Sunday Feb. 12, 1905. Sherman, Augustus F. (Augustus Francis) -- Photographer. 1902-1905


Notes: N.d., but 1905, just after Commissioner Williams' resignation. When the same photograph appeared in 'City life and municipal facts' (June 8, 1911), it was called 'A family of Servian Gypses.' (Both clippings appear in the Williams scrapbooks: Vol. I, p. 71 back; and Vol. II, p. 55 front.) This photo appears in Dunne, Thomas. 'Ellis Island' (W.W. Norton & Co., 1971), p. [62].
