A group of berry pickers on the farm of Mr. Giles, Seaford, Del. 3 children are 3 years of age, 3 are 4 years old, 1 is 5 years old, and 1 is 6 years old. During the berry season the families get out into the field at 4 o'clock in the morning, and each child is assigned to 2 rows of berry growth, each 300 yards, long, and when the whistle of the padrone sounds they start picking and generally quit work about 1 P.M. There are days when the work continues until 4 and 5 o'clock in the evening. Location: Seaford, Delaware.
