Heart-Breaking Pictures of Child Labour In USA by Lewis Hine As hard as things might seem right now for high school or university students entering the job market, it’s probably nothing compared to what these kids had to go through in early 1900s America. This photo series, archived by the Library of Congress, shows what conditions were like for child laborers before child labor was largely eliminated in 1938. The photo series, taken by photographer Lewis Hine on behalf of the National Child Labor Committee, illustrates the dangers and hardships working children were subject to, especially in dangerous work where the modern safety equipment we’re used to was not yet available. The kids, some as young as 4, worked in factories, mines, plantations and textile mills. Children in coal mines inhaled damaging dust daily, while those working in canneries or textile mills could lose fingers. Many skipped school or didn’t do their homework so that they could work.
40 Must-See Photos From The Past The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” was coined by American newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane in 1911.

[Read more...] These photographs all tell stories about the historical figures or events that they represent. Once taken simply to document their present, they now help us witness the past.
Here’s How The Euro Would Look If It Was Designed By This Hungarian Student The euro is a controversial currency, but one thing that we can agree upon is that this currency might look a lot better if Hungarian graphic design student Barbara Bernat had anything to say about it. She created a series of fictional Hungarian euros with beautiful and elegant illustrations of European plants and animals that I would just love to have a wad of in my lonely and empty wallet. Bernat’s choice to portray plants and animals rather than the gray heads of national dignitaries or the facades of moldy buildings makes for some beautiful money. On Behance, she details how the drawings evolved – they began as drawings and evolved into copperplate etchings, which she used to imitate the intaglio printing process actually used to print money. Bernat is currently a MA student at the University of West Hungary (this work was her master’s project), so be sure to follow her – she’s probably got a lot more wonderful work coming!
