Surprising approach, Rob. The sitting young man at the background has succeeded to stay away from too much attention for many many years, but with your colorization, you've placed him figuratively in the spotlights. Don't know whether it was a wink from your side. If so, you've certainly succeeded in doing this. Whether yes or no, it has caused, in spite of the in this image to a certain extent shown hardship, a smile on my face. Very inventive, my friend!

Something "fishy" going on with the one you chose to colorize, Rob.
I like that you chose him to get the attention instead of the one in the middle who was obviously striving to be the center of attention.
It looks like lunch time since they are having a snack or resting.
They now have machines to do their work, but the machines were built on the backs of these young people.
Great once again.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

A close examination in Photoshop shows your colorized fellow is obviously older and beyond the "me, me, me" mannerism of social interaction that many children employ. I like how all of these kids are each engaged differently in their environment; the directions they're looking, their body language, and their interactions (or non-interaction) with the others are all different.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

I like the way you've added the colour to the boy in hiding - looks like they are on a break from work. Your work is so amazing, keep them coming

An interesting study on how broom design hasn't changed in over a century. I have one just like it and use it often. I would have highlighted it instead. Oh, and there's kids in the shot too. These don't have the oppressed and beaten down look we expect from child labor, and for the time, these would have been considered young adults. But spending their youth working, rather than in school, was a form of slavery. It constricted their minds and prevented them from rising higher in society than manual labor all their lives. And many vocations handed down parent to child required that no choice be given to the offspring either. You did what your parents did and that was that. In general, I think we're doing better at that now, even though the world is still a mess.

My first thought was that the older ones had less stamina and had to sit down.The half a man on the right appears to be smoking a pipe (?)
I wonder if the one you chose to colour was their supervisor.
Those poor poor children - cutting and cartoning from dawn to dusk and always the smell of fish, cut hands and chronic tiredness at the end of the day.
The girls appear to be twins

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
