Working kids - Yazoo City Mississippi 1911 - Colored by me

Supt. and overseers with the "Relief Crowd," in Yazoo City (Miss.) Yarn Mills. The Supt. said, "We relieve all children under sixteen for two hours a day except the doffers, who get plenty of time off. They go out and play." Then turning to the children he said, "Now play." They eyed him blankly, "Play wot?" "Oh, play anything." Before they could do it, however, he had to pose them himself (see photo 2106) which was especially posed for the occasion. In this photo, note the disparity between the (alleged) ages of the younger ones who said that they were 12 and 13, and the older ones, who said 15 years old. Location: Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Emmy Rossum - Beverly Hills CA

Emmy Rossum keeps it cute in floral while carrying a green juice out of Pressed Juicery on Wednesday afternoon (September 24) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 28-year-old actress recently opened up to Elle magazine about her upcoming movie You’re Not You, out on October 10.
“In my life, I have always been very scared of sickness, aging, and death. So it’s interesting that I got involved with You’re Not You at the tail end of losing a good friend to melanoma,” Emmy wrote. “My friend, who died before we even started shooting, went into hospice—she’d stopped treatment and had tumors so big you could feel them through her ribcage—the same day I auditioned for the movie. I was so broken open that day that I’m sure it only added to my performance.”
She continued, “At its core, You’re Not You is really a love story—a non-romantic love story between two women, which can be the most intense, pure form of friendship. The only good thing about terminal illness is that it removes all of the pretense so that two people can cut right to getting to know each other in the most human way: taking care of each other both physically and emotionally.”
