The prairie-wagon home of a family of itinerant beet workers, now camped near Ft. Collins, Colo. Street family. The children 7- 8- 10- and 12 work steadily and I saw the tiny girl pulling beets after sunset on the following Sunday, and they had not yet finished. The father told me "We got squeezed out of the mountains," one of the neighbors said they has been chased out because they wouldn't send their children to school. Living on the edge of Ft. Collins, they boldly work the children and violate school law. Came from Log Cabin, Colo. Location: Fort Collins vicinity, Colorado. Date Created/Published: 1915 October 30.
