Newsies from 1910, St. Louis, Missouri

Newsies from 1910, St. Louis, Missouri

Whenever you worry that kids today have to grow up too quick…look at this photo and remember that it’s not a modern problem.

From an age and circumstance where children were much more grown-up than they are expected to be today. The caption for the photo reads:

11 a.m. Monday, May 9, 1910. “Newsies at Skeeter’s Branch, Jefferson near Franklin, St. Louis.”
