"A little spinner in the Mollahan Mills, Newberry, S.C."  Lewis W. Hine. 1908.
"She was tending her "sides" like a veteran, but after I took the photo, the overseer came up and said in an apologetic tone that was pathetic, 'She just happened in.' Then a moment later he repeated the information. The mills appear to be full of youngsters that 'just happened in,' or  'are helping sister.'" Dec. 3, 08. Witness Sara R. Hine. Location: Newberry, South Carolina.
