Very well written history of the Irish immigration into the 1st Ward of Buffalo, NY. Factual information of the struggles they encountered, among them being discrimination, disease, floods, poor working conditions and total poverty, just to name a few. But the highlight of this book, to me, is how the Irish overcame all of these obstacles and became a great part of America's history. History of the years between 1840's and 1940's. Large collection of photos.
