    No question child labor existed a long time, well before the Industrial Revolution. I'd hope an average day was uneventful and they finished in one piece. At the same time being directly involved with production, did any find and create solutions for safety, quality or output? Causes me to wonder; being around accidents, inefficiency, and conditions overall, was OJT [on job training] utilized to benefit owners or their work-force?
    A safe bet would be certain employers saw children as an inexhaustible and very cheap source of labor. Photographic evidence seems to indicate textiles and clothing used children more than others, maybe size was a factor too?

    Couldn´t help but notice the exclusion from the main group of the only non-white boy. Off to the side, and in the background.

    Yep, it is a woman, AND she is still working, not just sitting there. Looks like she might be sorting through cotton, possibly removing debris, etc.

    Yes children were preferred because they were small enough to get in and under the (usually running) equipment.

    AH, I had forgotten all about those. But can never forget "Silent Sam" the Andy Granatelli's STP turbine entry into the Indy500 in 1967. It totally dominated the race until a bearing failed with 4 laps to go. After that they placed air intake size restrictions on turbine engines, there were a few entries after that, but they did not have a chance with the restrictions.

    OLD TIME video from YouTube if that race.
    (I never understand why people think that music is good)

    I never got to see one of the Chrysler turbines in person...


    More information in regard to the turbine program...

    Per the Wikipedia entry only 9 of the 55 Chrysler turbines made still exist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_Turbine_Car

    I had the Revell model of that Granatelli Indy Turbine.

    Here's a good article about it and the other turbine that ran at INdy, the Lotus 56 https://gizmodo.com/this-jet-powered...500-1664958175
