Description: Photographer Lewis W. Hine spent several significant weeks among child workers in New Hampshire in May 1909 on behalf of the National Child Labor Committee, one of many reform organizations formed by concerned citizens in the early 20th century. New Hampshire was one of the first states to pass child labor legislation in 1846, but factory inspection and enforcement were inadequate. Hine's work helped focus attention on the problem, and in 1911 the state passed new child labor legislation and improved enforcement provisions.
