Mystery of iconic 1908 child labor photo is solved

She was a little girl of 9 or 10, staring out a window in the Lincolnton cotton mill where she worked. Lewis Hine – the father of American documentary photography – captured the haunting image of the too-young textile employee in 1908. Now, a Massachusetts researcher who has tracked down descendants of 350 people in the Hine photos believes he’s solved the mystery of both images.
