January 1909. "One of several youngsters I found in Tampa Cigar Box Factory. They are reported to have many children when work is rushing. About 10 young boys and girls, 300 employees." Photo by Lewis Wickes Hine.
"Photos taken during noon hour, October 23rd, 1912, at the Loray Mills, Gastonia, N.C. They said they were working and went in to work. At night I counted over thirty children coming out when the whistle blew, and they seemed to be from ten to twelve years old. The Superintendent was much disturbed over the photos."
