New Haven Receiving New Immigrants and Learning

Mural Approximate Location:
New Haven Free Public Library 133 Elm Street, New Haven, CT 06510, United States

Artist:
Bancel LaFarge

Description:
The Personification of the City of New Haven, the central female figure, welcomes both students and immigrants. While Yalies play sports on the campus green, well-to-do urbanites in the background suggest that the immigrants will soon be as successful. A three-mastes schooner both brings people to New Haven, and delivers the goods manufactured in the 19th century factory seen under plumes of smoke. “Handsome Dan,” Yale’s mascot, sits placidly in the lower left.
