Photo at Top: EMMA LAZARUS’ poem was inscribed at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Its most moving lines, embracing immigrants, wrap around the poster:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Passersby at Philly Typewriter write thoughts on the red, white and blue Royal 1960 typewriter--the only model with this patriotic palette ever manufactured. Here, Imogene Parker, 6, types for the first time. ________________________________
