Faces of Lost Youth
The Mill
Tony Casale of hartford, Connecticut was 11 and had been selling newspapers for four years. Sometimes he sold his papers until 10 PM. His dad often bit him when he did not sell his dad's standards of enough papers. His dad was also often drunk and "said bad word" to him (as Tony said).

These three boys were under 14 and worked in a cigar factory in Tampa, Flordia. Many labor workers said they hired young children in busy times. All of the youngsters at this factory smoked.
About Lewis Hine
Lewis Hine was born in Wisconsin on September 26, 1874 to Douglas Hull Hine and Sarah Hayes Hine. His first job was in a furniture upholstery factory where he worked 13 hours a day, 6 days a week and earned $4 per week. Hine experienced young workers being exploited and wanted to change this. At University Extension classes he met Frank Manny who was a principal. Manny encouraged Hine to become a teacher and study under famous liberal eductaors named John Dewey and Ella Flagg Young. Manny became superintendent of a school in NY and asked Hine to be their photgarpher. Hine started to realize how photography revealed truth, something he always stressed throughout his career. He soon became a photographer for The National Child Labor committee to help advocate for child labor laws. These photographs were his most famous works, however he did continue doing comission work after helping the government realize there should be laws set in place for children working.
