Picture of an 'invisible car' baffles the internet 'It appears the call was not prioritized': These workers would often be put in dangerous situations and many ended up injured or permanently crippled as a result.

These days, coal miners still face a lot of work hazards no matter how OSHA-compliant their employer. Back before these types of jobs were regulated though, employees were given little, if any, protective clothing and forced to work ten or twelve hour shifts. These boys, photographed in , stayed underground all day from 7 AM to 5 PM. The youngest boys at the company would be hired as "trappers," sent to open up the trap doors to allow the drivers through with their coal loads.

This boy lost his leg when he was only eleven when, working as a trapper, he got stuck between two cars. The company determined it was his fault and refused to offer him any compensation. Even after the accident, his father continued to work at the mine. This thirteen-year-old was fortunate, as far as boy miners went, because he got to operate the trip rope, allowing him to spend most of his time outdoors. These young boys worked inside a factory building in , processing the impurities from the coal by hand.

Before machines were invented to streamline the process, bedsprings were linked by hand in factories like this one photographed in While the work was dangerous and difficult, at least this factory refused to hire anyone under the age of seventeen.

This textile mill, photographed in , commonly hired children too young to even reach the tops of the machines to mend the broken threads. As a result, sights like this were common on the factory floor. Unsurprisingly, factory accidents were an all-too-common occurrence. This year-old boy lost his leg and arm in an industrial accident at a spring factory in Despite the fact that he spent two years at the factory, no one from the company stopped by to visit him after the accident and he received no compensation for his injuries.

He was injured after he fell asleep during an eighteen hour shift and accidentally turned on the machine in front of him in the process.
