SLIDE SHOW: Lewis Hine’s Mill Photos
0 votes, 0.00 avg. rating (0% score)

Photographer Lewis Hine is best known for his documentary work capturing images of child labor around the country for the National Child Labor Committee from 1908-1924. The following photographs represent some of the images he created while traveling around New England and include his field notes. Faces discovered in cranberry bogs, mills, sardine factories and tobacco fields all proved instrumental in enforcing and changing the laws regarding the employment of underage children.

These images represent a small sampling from the library of congress’s vast collection of Hine’s photographs for the NCLC. All photographs in this slide show are from the National Child Labor Committee’s Collection which was donated to the library of Congress in 1954 by Mrs. Gertrude Folks Zimand, acting for the NCLC in her capacity as chief executive. To see more of Hine’s work for the NCLC, please visit loc.gov/pictures/collection/nclc
