Description 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ Detail of the 19th-century Plymouth (Massachusetts) Cordage Works, where laborers of all ages manufactured rope and hawsers. These factories were dangerous and unhealthy places for the most part, with children as young as eight or nine working alongside adults. Some of these child laborers were condemned to work here by the courts, in an age when orphans and children adjudged 'incorrigible' were sent away to factories and mines and forgotten. Digital painting from an original photograph documenting a shameful episode in American history.
