Dunbar & Dukate oyster cannery. According to the testimony of a number of the parents and children, this factory reverses the child labor law to suit its own convenience, and probably to avoid detection. Instead of excluding the young children from work before six o'clock according to the law, they let the young children work from four until seven, and then send them home. Location: Biloxi, Mississippi L.W. Hine

View of the Gorenflo Canning Co., Biloxi, Miss., taken at 7 A.M. Many tiny workers here, some of whom began to arrive at the factory as early as 5 o'clock, an hour before they were allowed to begin work, and long before daylight on a damp-foggy day. The whistle had blown and they came and stood around merely to hold their places. When the "catch" has been good, they begin work early, but today it was not good so they were waiting for daylight. In this group I ascertained the ages of a few, as follows, 1 child of 6 years, 1 of 7, 2 of 8, 1 of 10 and there were many more. See report also. Location: Biloxi, Mississippi
