4 P.M. Ceru family, 143 Thompson St., near tenement, N.Y. In this dirty attic home with a dog and a cat adding to the other filth that accumulates, these three make artificial leaves. The little five-year-old helps some. She was sighing, "Tired." Her sister (about 10 years old) works until 9 P.M. some nights although she is near-sighted. At home she keeps her glasses on the shelf, 'because [because] Mother says I look funny with them. Now I got to go out and shop." [Second card:] Making artificial leaves in tenement attic. New York City, 1912. The 5-year-old helps. Her sister, aged 10, works till 9 P.M. some nights although she is near-sighted. Location: New York, New York (State)
