A Little Italian Girl, 1901

Happy Hours in Story Land.  New York:  McLoughlin Brothers, 1901.

According to Destination America, "Between around 1880 and 1924, more than four million Italians immigrated to the United States, half of them between 1900 and 1910 alone—the majority fleeing grinding rural poverty in Southern Italy and Sicily."  The page above shows one of the results.
