CHILDREN IN KINDERGARTEN AT LYNCHBURG COTTON MILLS
Lynchburg, May 1911
Group in the "Kinleygarten" (the mill Policeman called it) at Lynchburg (Va) Cotton Mills. The children
of the mill settlement from six to sight years attend. Several older boys (see exterior photo 2169) were
hanging around and joining in when they could. Also a mother and babe. I asked Miss Carrington, in
charge, where the children from eight to fourteen go, and she said that few of them at those ages care
for education. Tehy [they] are just waiting to become old enough to get into the mill. The only available
school for them is a long way off." (Hine's caption)
