Both of these pictures are taken from the Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. The image above is showing the Chinese immigrants working in the Calvin Sampson Shoe Factory. The image below shows the Chinese immigrants arriving at the shoe factory. These immigrants were the life saver of Calvin Sampson. If it wasn't for them then he would have probably had to go out of business for the fact that all of his prior workers went on strike. By bringing in these immigrants it not only saved his company, but made it a lot better as well.
