This is not a group of boys from Wales; they are from Pennsyvania. They were called Breaker Boys and they seperated the shale from the coal back in 1910. This picture was used to help pass child welfare laws. I found this at Life magazine 100 greatest pictures. I think the picture is a great reminder that we here in the United States didn't and won't always do the right thing. We need to be constantly watched and prodded. But whatever it takes.
