A People From The East
Harper’s Monthly published an American journalist’s encounter with the inhabitants of Little Syria. Published in 1903, this text describes Norman Duncan’s conversations and descriptions of what he saw and also contains portraits of his exact location. This is an interesting look of the attitude and atmosphere of Little Syria in the early 20th century.
