This photo of a young lady, working as a spinner in a cotton mill, was taken by Lewis Wickes Hine. This particular picture was taken in 1908 at Vivian Cotton Mills in Cherryville, North Carolina. Hine took many photographs around child labour and poverty, from 1900 to 1937. Since Hine was a sociologist and photographer, he used his camera and photos for social reform, especially in the area of child poverty.
