Stripping Tobacco, 1916
LOC Title: B.F. Howell, Route 4, Bowling Green, Ky. and part of his family
stripping tobacco. The 8 and 10-year old boys in photo "tie up waste";
his 12-year old boy and 14-year old girl (not in photo but they lose a
good deal of schooling for work) are regular strippers. Photo taken
during school hours. Location: Bowling Green, Kentucky. November 10, 1916.
Ah yes, the good old days. . . missing school to strip tobacco.
