She was tending her 'sides' like a veteran, but after I took the photo, the overseer came up and said in an apologetic tone that was pathetic, 'She just happened in.'

Français : Une petite fileuse dans l'usine Mollohan, à Newberry, en Caroline du sud (États-Unis). Elle s'occupait de sa machine comme une ouvrière expérimentée, mais après que la photo a été prise, le contremaitre est venu et a dit sur un ton d'excuses qui était pitoyable "elle est là par hasard". Les usines de la région semblent pleines de jeunes enfants qui "sont là par hasard" ou "aident une sœur". 03 décembre 1908. Témoin: Sara R Hine. Lieu: Newberry, Caroline du Sud.
