9 year old cash girl in Gafer Department store.

9 year old cash girl in Gafer Department store. At first glance the home conditions with a one-armed father and several children in the family would indicate that her small wages were needed, but when we found that the father is able to do certain kinds of work, and that they have relatives who are well-to-do, there was no doubt that the family could get along without her working. In almost all the cases investigated, the need for the child's earning was very small. Location: Mobile, Alabama. Date Created/Published: 1914 October. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print.
