Child laborer, 1910

Ten-year-old Rose Biodo, carrying two pecks of berries, an example of child labor. This was her third summer working in Browns Mills, New Jersey, approximately 36 miles (58 km) from her hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The photo was taken on September 28, 1910, four weeks into the school year, and she was expected to stay on the job for another two weeks.
