Check Out This Restored Vintage Film Showing Immigrants Arriving at Ellis Island in 1903

Restored and uploaded by YouTuber Guy Jones, this fantastic video from 1903 shows a ferry boat transporting hopeful immigrants from their larger trans-Atlantic vessel onto Ellis Island for processing. Dozens of families disembark the ferry with children and all the personal belongings they could carry. The sound isn't original but adds a pleasant ambiance and realism to the scene.
