Thank you, Chris! I had totally forgotten about that particular photo, as well as Bate's College. The era is right on, 1880's to 1940's. I've also forgotten about the Hine Collection and I'll take another look at that, it's been a long time. Thanks, again Chris!!
Especially Interesting is the child labor laws and how they've changed in the 1900's, also the need for the children of large Franco-American families to work in order for them to survive and make a new beginning, here. I can't seem to find a connection between the mills and my branches of the Ouellette and Fredette families in Androscoggin Co. That was a cool Blog! I liked the photo of the one at Oxford Plains. It's only up the road from where I grew up. Thank you, again Chris!
