El Viaje: Puerto Ricans of Philadelphia (PA) (Images of America) (English, English and Spanish Edition) by Carmen Teresa Whalen

Although few people know its history, Philadelphia is the third-largest Puerto Rican community in the United States. Thousands have made el viaje, or the journey, from Puerto Rico to Philadelphia, beginning before 1898 and continuing today. Puerto Ricans came as political exiles, merchants, and workers and built vibrant everyday lives and community organizations. By the 1970s, the Puerto Rican community was strong and diverse. El Viaje is a photographic journey of Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia, and it refers to a popular local radio program.
