The "Kinleygarten" (the mill policeman called it) at Lynchburg (Va.) Cotton Mills.

The "Kinleygarten" (the mill policeman called it) at Lynchburg (Va.) Cotton Mills. The children of the mill settlement, from 6 to 8 years attend. Several older boys (see exterior photo, 2169) were hanging around and joining in when they could. Also a mother and babe. I asked Miss Carrington, in charge, where the children from 8 to 14 go, and she said that few of them at those ages care for education. They are just waiting to become old enough to get into the mill. The only available school for them is a long way off. Lynchburg, Virginia. Date Created/Published: 1911 May.
