In some ways reminiscent of Alfred Stieglitz’s “The Steerage” (1907), the present image depicts Jews at the Hamburg port about to board a steamer-ship, likely bound for America. The artist, Hamburg native Karl Keinke (b. 1852), depicts various stripes of travelers preparing to embark on their trans-Atlantic journey. Notice the Hebrew initials and Star-of-David present on the wooden trunk being wheeled in the foreground. <<Accompanied by:>> Additional inset tipped to upper left corner, depicting life below deck and the first sighting of Land.
