From National Child Labor Committee Photographs taken by Lewis Hine
April 26 is Take your Child to Work Day, including here at the National Archives. This Lewis Hine photo was selected by junior-web-curator-in-training Eamon C., age 8. We chose this photo as a sobering reminder that bringing kids to work was not always a solely educational or infrequent experience. Of this photo he says:
“This is a good picture except that the girl is showing sadness. I think that I’m lucky that I get to go to school and not work.”
Did you bring your daughter or son to work today — or did you ever get to shadow your parents at work?
