WV Glass Works Carrying-In Boy, 1908

Entitled: "Carrying-in Boy at the Lehr Glass Works. Has worked for several years. Works nine hours. Day shift one week, night shift next week. Gets $1.25 per day. Location: Grafton, West Virginia." There were four main jobs in the glass factories that used boys as a majority of the labor. The boy who opens and closes the iron mold for the blower was the "holding-mold boy". The second job required the boy to stand beside the presser and receive the tumblers from the large mold was called the "ketchin-up boy". The third job was for the boy who seized the blown or pressed objects with a long iron rod and holds them in the flame of the glory hole was called the "sticker-up boy". The final job was for the boy who takes the finished objects from the finisher to the annealing oven for the final firing of the object and was called the "carrying-in boy". These jobs required long hours and cramped conditions. Photographed by Lewis Hine, October 1908.
