Transport yourself to the heart of South Pittston, Pennsylvania, in 1911 with this poignant photograph captured by Lewis Hine. It's noon hour at the Ewen Breaker of the Pennsylvania Coal Co., where the relentless toil of child labor unfolds before your eyes. Hine's powerful documentation sheds light on the working conditions these children endured in an era before the existence of unions. This striking image serves as a testament to the harsh realities and hardships faced by these young workers, leaving an indelible impact on the viewer and reminding us of the urgent need for social progress and advocacy for the rights of all.
Image quality and the extent to which the image was packaged securely was perfect. Could not be happier with the product.
This image along with much of Thomas Hines' work is incredibly powerful. The brutality faced by these children makes our everyday hardships seem frivolous.
