All these pick shrimp at the Peerless Oyster Co. I had to take photo while bosses were at dinner as they refused to permit children to be in photos. Out of 60 workers, 15 were apparently under 12 years. Location: Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Date Created/Published: 1911 March. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print. Child labour photo by Lewis Wickes Hine.
