The Factory Girls
This narrative describes an incident in which a young man meets two female operatives and their father in an undisclosed New England town. He finds the girls well mannered and pleasant and marvels at their energy and the beauty of their singing voices. This piece appears designed to assuage the fears of men, young and old, that young factory women were being ruined in the mills. Instead, the narrator observes, they retain their youth and beauty and are even better suited for a domestic life following their employment at the mills.For more information on this item, see the AAS Catalog.
