Cotton Workers

This photograph shows a group of young girls that work in a cotton mill. The picture was taken in about 1909 in Georgia. Work in a cotton mill would have amounted to little more than a sweatshop at this time. It is amazing how several of these girls manage a smile for the camera.

  4. What a wonderful shot!! They sure look like they could get into a lot of mischief, if they didn't have to work so hard...
