Lewis hine was a photographer who took photos of working kids to help stop making kids work in dangerous jobs.
One day, when Martha was working on a loom, she heard Floyd cough, which distracted her. The spinner broke, and an overseer rushed over to fix it, not paying Martha any attention. Martha broke two fingers
After the loom accident, Lewis Hine came to the factory to take pictures of the working kids, when he saw Martha, he came over, asked to take a photo, and what happened, Martha explained, "I have a older brother, had a younger one too."
Many years later, when Lewis Hine was about to die, he was sitting with his wife, and the acknowledged the fact that child labor isn't nearly as bad as it used to be, but Lewis Hine was still sad, thinking about all the kids he took photos of.
