Child Labor: Carolina cotton mill, 1908.

Child laborer Sadie Pfeiffer tends a thread-spinning frame in a North Carolina textile mill. The height of the machine compared to Sadie, along with the enormous distance between her and the girl in the background, emphasizes the minute size and resulting vulnerability of the child in a dangerous factory environment.
