Irish and Italian Immigrants
Alden Place used to be called "Hogan's Alley" after a news- paper comic strip, begun in 1895, about immigrant children using odd slang. The Irish were the first to settle on Alden Place, having moved to Millbrook to work on the farms and on the railroad. Among them was Mary Hogan, whose house was at the start of "the Alley." By 1925, most of the houses on Alden Place were owned or rented by first-generation Italians, many of whom had immigrated to Millbrook from the region around Fondi, 75 miles southwest of Rome, to work as masons, construction workers, or gardeners on the large estates. Their Italian Naturalization Club, shown in both photos, was down the street. The Italians formed several mutual-aid societies to help one another in their new land.
Immigranti Irlandesi ed Italiani
Alden Place era chiamato "Hogan's Alley," tratto da una striscia comica di giornale iniziata nel 1895, con bambini di im migranti che usavano uno strano dialetto. Gli irlandesi furono i primi ad occupare Alden Place, lavorando nella ferrovia e nelle fattorie. Tra di essi c'era Mary Hogan, la cui casa era all'inizio dell' Alley." Dal 1925 molte delle case in Alden Place erano di proprietà o affittate dalla prima generazione d'italiani, molti dei quali erano immigrati a Millbrook da Fondi (e d'intorni),

75 mi glia al sud-ovest di Roma, lavorando come muratori o giardinieri nelle grandi tenute. La loro Italian Naturalization Club, mostrata in entrambe le foto, era alla fine della strada. Gli italiani formarono numerose società di mutuo soccorso per aiutarsi nella loro nuova terra. (Marker Number 12.)
