10 - Visitors from America: Faces


This pictorial essay with a commentary displays seventy-eight photographs of passport applicants born in Leitrim, arranged according to thirteen themes each occupying one page. These images are set against photographs of eight men from Leitrim who were selected by the Harvard ethnographers to represent Irish racial types. The commentary identifies each applicant by name with some biographical information, and explains the attributes of each type as defined by the ethnographers.
