Photograph by Pierre Daye  
Cooking With Fresh Verbs


An Italian immigrant makes an American breakfast aided by instructional materials from the YMCA.

Day and evening school sessions offered adults subjects including child care, hygiene, housekeeping, English—and courses in eliminating accents once English was learned. This photograph was first published in the April 1918 article "What Is It to Be an American?"
