Lewis Hine - Mill Workers, ctd

Here's another set of Lewis Hine's photos of mill workers - mostly of child laborers.

 The superintendent and one of the spinners, Catawba Cotton Mills, Newton, NC. Others smaller still. Ten boys and girls this size and smaller out of a force of 40 employees, 1908

 This little girl is so small she has to stand on a box to reach her machine. She is regularly employed as a knitter in Loudon Hosiery Mills, Loudon, Tennessee, 1910

 Two of the helpers in the Tifton Cotton Mill at Tifton, Georgia, 1909

 Two of the tiny workers, a raveler and a looper in Loudon Hosiery Mills.
