“In The Dust of the Coal Breaker” is the title of this 1907 postcard issued by the Pennsylvania Child Labor Committee in conjunction with the National Child Labor Committee. The cards were used to publicize the deplorable conditions faced by child labor. This card was No. 11 in the series, and it shows clean-faced Pennsylvania breaker boys at work.
