Some Things Never Change

Please forgive me for returning one more time to the Lewis Wickes Hine collection of early 20th-century photography, as posted on the photo-blog Shorpy.

I found this picture of girl factory workers in Cleveland in 1910 utterly charming; these could very easily be fourth-grade students at any school in Delaware today.

Little girls will always be little girls.

horrible to think that they were working in a factory at that age.

I love it !

I wouldn't want to tangle with the one on the left, though.

The picture made me smile, but then I read 10 year old factory workers.
