Groups of workers in Clayton (N.C.) Cotton Mills.

Groups of workers in Clayton (N.C.) Cotton Mills. Every one went in to work when the whistle blew, and I saw most of them at work during the morning when I went through. Mr. W.H. Swift talked with a boy recently who said he was ten years old and works in the Clayton Cotton Mill, also that others the same age worked. Here they are. I couldn't get the youngest girls in the photos. Clayton is but a short ride from the State Capitol. (The Superintendent watched the photographing without comment.) Location: Clayton, North Carolina. Date Created/Published: 1912 October. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print. Child labour pic by Lewis Wickes Hine.
