(Branch of St. Louis firm.) Peter's Shoe Co. Boy on left end is Harry Chrystal, (Add. Box #9, De Soto) an inveterate smoker. He is a "brusher," gets $3 a week; has worked one summer; is on now "for the winter." Said, after hesitation, when I asked age, "I'm fourteen." Doesn't appear to be. Boy in middle and right end boy seem to be under 14. They are Walter Johnson and Eugene Rieser, and claim to be regular workers. Walter said he had just been "fired" and Eugene had "got mad and quit." Location: De Soto, Missouri. Date Created/Published: 1910 October. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print.
