9 P.M. Gum vendors still selling, near the National Theater, April 1912

Original Caption: 9 P.M. Gum vendors still selling, near the National Theater. Eli Marks, 8 years old, makes 25 cents a night. Morris Marks, 10 years old, makes 50 cents a night. Harry Schneider, 11 years old, makes 50 cents a night. When they see us, they chase us home at 8:30, but when we see 'em coming we slid the boxes in our pockets, until the cop gets past. Then we stay 'til 9 or after sometimes, April 1912
