Children Working in a Canning Factory

Daisy Langford was only eight years old when Lewis Hine took this photograph of her working at Ross's Canneries in Seaford, Delaware. She helped at the capping machine, but was not yet able to keep up. She placed caps on cans at the rate of about forty per minute, working full time in her first season at the cannery.
