They had no idea who Hugo was standing with. But I did! Hugo is one of the four main subjects of my book.

Save Ellis Island
In 2017 my daughter and I took a photo tour of the Ellis Island Hospital. They are in process of restoring this remarkable building with important history. Yesterday I was honored to learn the Save Ellis Island website is using one of my photos as their home page banner (image at right) and they have posted a gallery of 14 of my images.
