The child labour photos of Lewis Wickes Hine in the Library of Congress are an important historical archive of not only child exploitation in the labor force but early 1900s American history. 

But these child labor pictures tell only part of the story. Information about the people, factories, locations, occuptions, customs, clothing, etc. need to be added to frame the photographs in full.  That is where you come in.

We have captured the pictures and presented them in a format where information can be added by users via Comments.  You can help tell the story of what was happening then, and what has happened since.  You can add photographs that you own (no copyright violations please) to a Comment if they are relevant to the posted picture.

If you have additional information about any of the pictures that would be educational to our users,  please join us and share it with them. Many students use this website as a resource to learn the history of child labor in the United States.  Anything that you could add that would further their education would be appreciated.
