On this day: Child Labour in Alabama

Child workers are seen at a factory in Huntsville, Alabama, USA at noon on the 18th of November 1910.

The photograph was taken by social activist and renowned photographer Lewis Hine, (1874-1940), who was instrumental in child labour reform in the United States, but who ended his life in poverty and obscurity, unable to find much interest in his work at the time of his death.
