All these I saw regularly at work during work hours in Richmond Spinning Mills. Tiny girl on left, five years old, is Goldie, who helps her sister, girl back of her. When I tried to get a photo of her at work at her machine, the Overseer said, "Don't put her in. A photo of that might get me into a lot of trouble." I said, "But she isn't working, she's only helping." All the same" he replied, "if they caught her in here, they might fine me a hundred dollars."  Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee.
