Hine, Lewis Wickes. In center of the picture is Phoebe Thomas, 8 year old Syrian
girl, running home from the factory all alone, her hand and arm bathed with
blood, crying at the top of her voice. She had cut the end of her thumb
nearly off, cutting sardines in the factory, and was sent home alone, her
mother being busy. The loss of blood was considerable, and might have been
serious. Aug. 1911. Prints & Photographs Online Catalog. LC,
