These were all working in the Century Cotton Mill, South Boston, Va., and the mill was running a very small force. One of the small boys belongs to family shown in photo 2206. Location: South Boston, Virginia.

Ebb-tide in the industry. Home of Mrs. Edwards. Her boy (photo 2203) works in Century Cotton Mill, South Boston, Va. Gets forty cents a day. Husband has a job in a North Caroline cotton mill not far away, and spends Sunday with the family here. They moved here a while ago, expecting steady work which was promised by the mill. Disappointed, as mill work very slack. Two girls (said to be 15 and 17) work in the shirt factory here, where I afterwards found some young children at work. Location: South Boston, Virginia.

Lillie Robertson, a young spinner in Century Cotton Mills, South Boston, Va. Runs four sides. Sister Mamie (with cup) helps her and is ten years old. Baby doesn't work yet. Father works in wagon factory. Cotton Mills work is slack. Location: South Boston, Virginia.

Part of the family of R.D. Thomas. He and a boy of 15 are working in the Century Cotton Mill, South Boston, Va. The girl on the ground does not work now, but said she was 12 years old (which she would not likely have done if she were in the mill). These children who are not working make a good means of comparison for ages of those that are working. Family has lived here four years. Before that, they lived in a Va. farm. Location: South Boston, Virginia.
