Immigrants<br />By : Olivia Brown<br />
This is an Old Rear Tenement in Roosevelt Street<br />Jacob Riis<br />
Back in immigration times an apartment building would look exactly like the picture above. <br />In some places it is still like “ The Old Rear Tenement” so not much has changed.<br />The Old Rear Tenement.<br />
Jacob Riis<br />The name of this is ,” A Black-and-Tan Dive in Africa<br />
The picture above is what a typical immigrants house would look like. <br />But most immigrants did not have a house. They manly had an apartment or they rented out a house. <br />A Black-And-Tan Dive Into Africa.<br />
In many homes they did not have money for a doctor when the got sick, so they had to get nursed back to health at home.<br />The same thing has happened in the picture you just saw.<br />A Home Nurse.<br />
The Mill: The overseer said apologetically, "She just happened in." She was working steadily. The mills seem full of youngsters who "just happened in" or "are helping sister." Newberry, South Carolina.<br />
In the picture above a little girl is having to work for money in a sweat shop. She probably would work with her older sister or mother. <br />The Mills.<br />
Newsies: Tony Casale, age 11, been selling 4 years. Sells sometimes until 10 p.m. His paper told me the boy had shown him the marks on his arm where his father had bitten him for not selling more papers. He (the boy) said, "Drunken men say bad words to us." Hartford, Connecticut. <br />
In the picture above a newsies or peddler is selling news papers for his family so they can pay the rent.<br />Newsies. <br />
Newsies: Fighting is not unusual here. In the alley, 4 p.m. Rochester, New York.<br />
The Mill: A moment's glimpse of the outer world. Said she was 11 years old. Been working over a year. Rhodes Mfg. Co. Lincolnton, North Carolina.<br />
This little girl is 11 and is looking out at the world for a glimpse of sun after all day working tell dark and getting up really, really early in the morning. She had no brakes or as we kids call it “recess” all day. If she could she would quit<br />But she has to work to help pay rent for her family.<br />The Mill<br />
Newsies: Francis Lance, 5 years old, 41 inches high. He jumps on and off moving trolley cars at the risk of his life. St. Louis, Missouri<br />
The Factory: View of the Scotland Mills, showing boys who work in mill. Laurinburg, North Carolina.<br />
The picture above is of a factory that manly boys would work in only a few girls would actually work in the types of mills.<br />The Factory<br />
Seafood Workers: Manuel the young shrimp picker, age 5, and a mountain of child labor oyster shells behind him. He worked last year. Understands not a word of English. Biloxi, Mississippi.<br />
This is what a little kid would do if he/she work around the docks.<br />Seafood Workers<br />
