Doffed All Summer: 1911

Doffed All Summer: 1911

Stephen Warren, 284 Main St., Indian Orchard. Has doffed all summer in Indian Orchard Mfg. Co. Quit a few days ago but expects to get another job soon. Says he will not go to school. Location: Indian Orchard, Massachusetts. September 1911. Photo by Lewis Wickes Hine. In a textile mill, the doffer removes the bobbins from a carding machine once they are full, having been wound with wool yarn or cotton thread. View full size.

 

1966

Worked my first job in that building during Summer 1966 waiting to go to college in fall. I read all three Lord of the Rings books that summer. Library is two blocks away. I read four science fiction books a week - most they would let you take out - until I read them all.

Indian Orchard - still there

Wow! Thanks!

Indian Orchard

Still there, almost down to the utility pole location he stood against.
