Interior of the Clara de Hirsch Home for Working Girls

The Clara de Hirsch Home for Working Girls was one of several charitable organizations established by "uptown", primarily German, Jews, on behalf of their "downtown" Eastern European immigrant co-religionists. It was founded in 1897 with the mandate to "improve [young immigrant women's] mental, moral and physical condition, and train them for self-support."

Institution: 92nd Street Y, New York City.
