Black-and-white offset print reproduction of the exterior of the former location of Temple Emanu-El at 5th Avenue and 43rd Street in New York. From New York and its institutions, 1609-1871, by John Francis Richmond.
Caricature by Joseph Ferdinand Keppler published in the April 1877 edition of Puck. The caricature depicts a conversation between the Jewish peddler Heimann Levi and a personification of New York. In German, the text reads : --Dame New-York: "Um Gotteswillen, Heimann Levi, geh' schnell hinein in die Assembly." --Heimann Levi: "Ich in die Assembly? Was soll ich da drinnen thun?" --Dame New-York: Damit zu den Herren, die viel sprechen, endlich einmal Einer kommt, der blos handelt." In English, the text reads : --Dame New-York: "For God's sake, Heimann Levi, go quickly into the Assembly." --Herimann Levi: "Me in the Assembly? What should I do inside?" --Dame New-York: "So that to the gentlemen, who speak a lot, finally comes one for once, who merely acts." In German, the verb handeln can mean "trade" or "deal," as a peddler does, as well as "act."
