Caption: "The Anti-Chinese Wall"
Source: Puck
Date: unknown
Artist: F. Graetz


Second caption reads: "The American Wall Goes Up as the Chinese Original Comes Down."

Although the ugliest and most racist caricatures are probably those of Chinese, here caricature is utilized sympathetically, showing the irony of European immigrants helping Uncle Sam to prohibit immigration from China.

Each brick bears a reason that the Chinese were not accepted in this country.
