Ebb-tide in the industry. Home of Mrs. Edwards. Her boy (photo 2203) works in Century Cotton Mill, South Boston, Va. Gets forty cents a day. Husband has a job in a North Caroline cotton mill not far away, and spends Sunday with the family here. They moved here a while ago, expecting steady work which was promised by the mill. Disappointed, as mill work very slack. Two girls (said to be 15 and 17) work in the shirt factory here, where I afterwards found some young children at work.
