Who knew

Bob Dylan was that old?

"Truant"??

That was a stretch, even for Lewis Hine. The man saw delinquency and vice everywhere he looked.

The Bad Seed

Hanging around boats and drinking, by the looks of it.

Sure Footed

Judging from those feet, the lad doesn't fall into the water much.

Is that a kid

Or a hobbit?

Someone call the cops

And pack this kid off to nursery school!

Poor kid!
