Miner’s family at Scott’s Run, West Virginia, photographed by Lewis Hine, 1937.
"This picture was taken at the natural supper hour. The man is a mine mechanic who installed all kinds of machinery. At first he refused to be photographed and cursed us and the government and the coal operators as being entertained by his minery. As we talked to him he showed us six statements which he held in five different bankrupt mines on Scott’s Run. He had not been paid his last pay in any bankruptcy."
