In this photo taken in February 1912 at the Maggioni Canning Co. in Port Royal, photographer Lewis Hine noted these children went to school for a half a day. But four hours before school and three hours after, the children shucked oysters. On Saturday, the children shucked from 4 a.m. to early afternoon.
