1929 Immigration song

1929 Immigration song

Have we ever changed since then eh...? How did we ever stray so far... ???

Amazing song. Never would happen today.

This is a video and song about immigration that was very popular around the late 1920's, and early - 30's. Listen closely to all the words. Maybe this should be our Immigration National Anthem....

Well, It Should Be Played More Often And Loud. If It Was Good Enough Then,it is Good Enough Now!

Hey--I like it.......

I wonder what precipitated that kind of feeling, at that particular time.. My guess is the American dream was tarnishing during the depression, even for the people that did not want any hand outs. I remember stories about how tough it was to find any gainful employment. I guess some folks from foreign lands did actually go back to their old countries. I never heard of anything like that being considered in my family, or in my home town, for that matter. You could never have dragged any of MY grandparents back to europe!
