    Freedman, Kids at Work: Lewis Hine and the Crusade against Child Labor, Clarion Books

    Lewis Hine, formerly a school teacher in New York, was hired by the National Child Labor Committee in 1908 to travel around the country photographing the working conditions of children.
    Hine's powerful and poignant "photo-impressions" (as he called them) of children at work helped change the nation's labor laws. This sale includes three lots, a small sample from his total output comprising over 5,000 photographs and negatives, now held by The Library of Congress, in Washington, D.C.
