From my new novel:
When they were eventually taken by barge to Castle Garden, Eliza joined a long queue snaking past the customs inspectors and another medical officer, until she entered the rotunda. The vast circular room was supported by narrow pillars, surrounding a central glass ceiling which poured light down onto the motley masses. The noise was deafening as immigration officers interviewed arriving passengers in their own language, creating a smorgasbord of sound. The place resembled a museum of national costume – bearded Russians in long coats and fur hats, Slavic women enveloped in embroidered shawls of every possible hue, English, Scottish or Irish men in tweedy jackets, corduroy trousers, Poles in military-style jackets, Italian girls in coloured head kerchiefs and peasant skirts, Germans in long boots, overcoats, leather breeches and some in leiderhosen.
