    "Three children operating rocker at a gold mine on Dominion Creek, Yukon Territory, ca. 1898."

    Good or bad situation, at least they had parental guidance.

    Is that a big dog to left of them? It looks like the pulley is to pull up buckets from a well.

    That is probably not a well, it is a mine. The kids parents, or maybe brothers or sisters are most likely down there filling the bucket with what they hope is gold bearing rock. The boy on the left has a "prospectors hammer" on his shoulder.

    Brings to mind the saying:

    "Hard times make strong men(people),
    Strong men make good times,
    Good times make weak men,
    Weak men make hard times!"

    Repeat

    They’re saying that the girl on the left is Greta Thunberg. Just goes to show what idiots some folks truly are.

    Yet even the family labor is home made.

    Who knows it could be Greta's great grandmother. Family resemblance runs deep.
