Noon Hour at Massachusettes Mill, Lindale, Georgia, 1913

The photographer's note reads: Noon hour at Massachusettes Mill, Lindale, Georgia. During the days following this, I proved the ages of nearly a dozen of these children by gaining access to Family Records, Life Insurance papers, and through conversations with the children and parents, and found these that I could prove to be working now, or during the past year at 10 and 11 years of age, some of them having begun before they were ten. Further research would reveal dozens more (see Hine Report). An exceptional photograph.

Please inquire for availability and price.
