5 yr. old Willie, one of Washington's youngest news-boys.

5 yr. old Willie, one of Washington's youngest news-boys. He is a kind of free-lance, helps other boys out, and roams around the city on his little velocipede, with all the recklessness of extreme youth. Gets lost occasionally. He was so immature that he couldn't talk plain, and yet he was pretty keen about striking people for nickels. William Frederick Tear, 490 Louisiana Ave., Washington, D.C. Location: Washington (D.C.), District of Columbia. Date Created/Published: 1912 April. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print. Child labour pics by Lewis Hine.
