Mortaria family, 8 Downing St., N.Y., making flowers wreaths. The Little three-year-old on left was actually helping, putting the center of the flower into the petal, and the family said she often works irregularly until 8:00 P.M. The other children, 9, 11, and 14 yrs. old work much later (until 10:00 P.M.) The oldest girl told me her father is a soap-maker and has been making $3.00 a day steady for three years. They told the same to the other investigator. (See also 2875.) 5 P.M. Location: New York, New York (State). Date Created/Published: 1912 February. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print.
