These photographs of young cotton mill workers taken by Lewis Wickes Hine in November and December 1913 are haunting. Merrimack mill was located in Huntsville, Alabama.
Many of the children are so young. I can’t imagine children of this age being in a factory mill, much less working there. I bet many died at an early age. The words in italics are of Lewis Wickes Hine.
