Ten-year-old Mollie Steuben topping beets. Many children of this age put in a full day's work, and many begin younger. The work is hard and the children sometimes cut themselves or are hooked by the long tooth on the end of the blade. Mollie and her two sisters, 12 and 14 yrs. old, work from 6 A.M. to 5 P.M., near Sterling. See also Hine report for further details about this work. Location: Sterling [vicinity], Colorado / Photo by Hine, Oct. 21/15.
