Mill workers, ca. 1900 / Lewiston Public Library

<strong>Chapter 8, page 240-242.</strong>

In the mid to late 1800s, child labor in the mills was common. Many children who worked in the mills were immigrants whose families needed the extra money. Note that the young boys are barefoot.

This photograph was taken in Lewiston about 1900.
