November 20 (p. 12)
The S.S. Sofia Hohenberg left Trieste in Austria on October 20, 1907 and arrived in New Orleans on November 18 after a stop in Palermo. The ship carried 1,300 immigrants from Austria-Hungary and Italy, many of whom wound up working on farms throughout the state of Louisiana. Photographer H. J. Harvey captured this image of one of the many families that debarked from the vessel.
