    Really awesome pictures, it always gives you one prospective to read something and another to see pictures. Thank goodness we have moved away from this era of child exploitation and overcrowded tenements.

      From what I have heard there are still some serious child labor problems in other parts of the world (wish I had more info to back up that claim), but I imagine that the laws protecting children still need to be pushed in countries that don’t enforce them as rigorously.
