Photo Captions:

[top picture] New hospital building, Ellis Island

[center picture] Swinburn Island — All suspects are transferred to this island to await development of disease.

[bottom picture] Hoffman Island — Where emigrants are sent when afflicted with contagious diseases, the last building in the background is the crematory.

[bottom] All passengers, either first, second or third class, from Cuban ports, from the 15th of May until the 1st of October, are obliged to spend two days on Swinburn Island. The voyage from Cuba takes three days, and five days is the required time for yellow fever to develop.

Web Editor's Note: In comparing the above pictures to both maps and other pictures of Hoffman and Swinburn islands, it appears that the above images in the brochure were mislabeled. Hoffman Island is the larger of the two islands and contained a water tower and Swinburn is the smaller of the two islands.
