Oyster Company, Bay St Louis, Mississippi: 1911

All these pick shrimp at the Oyster Co. I had to take photo while bosses were at dinner as they refused to permit the children to be in photos. Out of 60 workers, 15 were apparently under 12 years. Location: Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Date Created/Published: 1911 March. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print. Child labor photo by Lewis Wickes Hine.
