Cotton Mill Workers

This picture shows children who work in a Cotton Mill in Pell City, Alabama. The photograph was taken in 1910. Notice the cotton fibers on the children's hats. Cotton fiber is very dangerous to breath, and the health effects were probably as bad as working in a coal mine.
There is such a look of hopelessness on these faces. Children robbed of their childhood.
