July 2012

What they said about The History Place:

Furnishes 64 photographs taken by Lewis W. Hine (1874–1940) between 1908 and 1912...Original captions by Hine—one of the most influential photographers in American history—call attention to exploitative and unhealthy conditions for laboring children. A background essay introduces Hine and the history of child labor in the United States. This is a valuable collection for studying documentary photography, urban history, labor history, and the social history of the Progressive era.
