This weekly challenge is hosted by Mind over Memory
This is Annie Moore with her brothers. The piece was sculpted by Jeanne Rhynhart.
Annie, aged 18 yrs, left Ireland for the US in 1891 on the Nevada steamship. She traveled with her brothers aged 12yrs and 15yrs. She was the first emigrant ever processed at Ellis Island (New York).
This statue of Annie and her brothers stands outside the Heritage Centre in County Cork, Ireland – her port of departure.
