Photographer's notes: "Lewis and Claude have been sweeping and spinning in a South Carolina mill for several months. Could not write their own names, Stunted and immature apparently below 12 yrs." [Lewis Hine]

Nearly all of these urchins were discovered in the photography archives of the Library of Congress (and available without copyright restrictions online). Otherwise, urchin photos will be credited to the appropriate photographer with a link to its source (unless they come from my own collection of photographs from unknown photographers). If there is ever a copyright concern, do not hesitate to contact me.
