Before Rosie was a Riveter

Rosie, 7, is a regular oyster shucker at Varn & Platt Canning Co. in Bluffton, South Carolina. It is her second year at it. She is illiterate and works all day. Shucks only a few pots a day. February, 1913. From Shorpy, the 100-Year-Old Photo Blog. Via Mental Floss.

Hi Jenny.

Thanks for the link to this blog. Great photos. I sometimes wonder if kids were happier then or now.
