Actually, forget the urchins this week. Check out that sweet playground equipment. Imagine how much fun that slide was after a twelve hour shift at the oyster cannery.

Photos from the Detroit Publishing Co. collection at the Library of Congress.

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.
