Dinner-Toters: 1913

Dinner-Toters: 1913

"Dinner-Toters" waiting for the gate to open. This is carried on more in Columbus than in any other city I know, and by smaller children. Many of them are paid by the week for doing it, and carry, sometimes, ten or more a day. They go around in the mill, often help tend to machines, which often run at noon, and so learn the work. A teacher told me the mothers expect the children to learn this way, long before they are of proper age. Photo by Lewis Wickes Hine, Columbus, Georgia, 1913. View full size.
