Though it has no photos or graphics, for those with Irish ancestry in Philadelphia, it can nonetheless paint a good picture of immigrant life back then.

The Irish In Philadelphia: Ten Generations of Urban Experience. This book covers the anti-Irish riots of 1844, the huge influx of immigrants in the 1840s and 1860s, the separate institutions constructed in the city by the Irish (including a nearly unique parochial school system), the way the Civil War changed attitudes toward the Irish, Philadelphia's participation in "The troubles" in Ireland, among other topics. Coming from an Irish Catholic family with roots in this city going back at least 150 years, this book was extremely interesting and informative.

Not an easy read, but very enlightening history of both the people and the city centering mainly upon the 19th century. Though it has no photos or graphics, for those with Irish ancestry in Philadelphia, it can nonetheless paint a good picture of immigrant life back then. It even briefly mentioned and described a neighborhood that was among the first my family lived in. It is a scholarly work published by Temple University in 1973, footnoted, and well sourced.
