Lot Essay

Hine's accompanying inventory note states: 'during the days following this, I proved the ages of nearly a dozen of those children, by gaining access to family records. Insurance papers and through conversations with the children and parents, and found those that I could prove to be working now, or during the past year, at ten and eleven years of age, some of them having begun before they were ten. Further research would reveal dozens more.'
