Reverting to a familiar ‘byline’, Bert secures a major piece in a New York monthly magazine..including photos, sketches and an extensive written piece of his first impressions of the Jewish way of life in America in 1904/05. Broadway Magazine was an illustrated magazine covering New York theater and culture from the 1898.
Here is his piece in full… 8 pages … enjoy.
My favourite line in the piece –
‘An Australian friend turned to me and remarked, as we gazed at the scene : “After all, that big Statue of Liberty out there in the bay does mean something more than empty sentiment, and the Russian Jew in particular should bless the American people in his prayers.”
