We'll start the day with a selection of working kids snapped by Lewis Hine, whose photographs, 100 years after they were taken, seem to exist in eerily infinite supply.
February 1, 1917. Vincenzo Messina, 15 years old, and brother Angelo, 11 years old, baking bread for their father at 174 Salem Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Vincenzo is working nights now. Angelo helps a great deal, tends store and helps bake, too. View full size. Photograph by Lewis Wickes Hine.
