Child Labor in America - Lewis Wickes Hine Tote Bags
The eyes of these boys tell much about their life as young laborers for a Macon, Georgia textile mill. Child labor laws were rarely enforced in southern textile mills during the early 1900's, and some of the laws that were in effect allowed children over 12 to work up to 66 hours a week. These four boys worked as doffers, replacing bobbins filled by the spinners with empty bobbins. Small boys had to climb onto the machines and some were injured when they were caught in open bobbins and spindles.
