Cigar Factory Reader
Today's picture was taken in 1909 in a Tampa, Florida cigar factory. The man sitting on the chair is the "reader". He would sit and read to the workers all day long. The workers chipped in to pay him, and they got to choose what he would read each day.
In the comments yesterday Ashley Jewel mentioned that this went on. I found that comment interesting, as I was already planning on using this picture today.
