Distractions

Lewis Hine must have had an assistant with him for all his group shots -- there are always a few people looking to the photographer's right (especially the women in groups). Having started out as an assistant "holding the light," I had to keep quiet so as not to attract someone's eyes!

[Or it might have been Hine himself. - Dave]
