“‘Radishes! Penny a bunch!’ Boys and girls sell all day until 11 P.M. Cincinnati, OH, 08/22/1908” Lewis Wickes Hine, Photographer
Taken by investigative photographer Lewis Hine on August 22, 1908, the photograph is one of a series of black-and-white prints given to the Children’s Bureau by the National Child Labor Committee. The almost five hundred photographs represent a fraction of the approximately 5,000 photographs Hine took for the committee to document working and living conditions for children.
