Cotton Mill



Today's picture shows a group of workers coming out of a Cotton Mill at lunch time. The picture was taken in Dallas, Tx in 1913.

  1. They look none too cheerful.

  2. Probably a pretty gloomy work environment. Based on the amount of cotton fibers clinging to that woman's dress I'd say they are pretty happy to get out into the fresh air.

  3. Appears there are several children who are also 'workers'. The era before child labor laws.
