Vintage Hats Worn Upon Arrival in NY 1907.

Old World Beauties Greeted by American Bachelors

"Under banner headlines like the one above, newspapers from coast to coast spread the joyful word that on September 27, 1907, a steamship had docked in New York with a spectacular cargo from Europe---1002 unmarried girls. The Old World beauties came ashore with a hectic welcome. As photographers recorded their smiles the ladies were beseiged by a crowd of bachelors and regaled by a band playing "Cupid's Garden" and "I Want You, Honey, Yes, I Do.""
