1800's Photo collection 1: Fitness freak; Kid Miners


 
 I have been trying to figure out how this machine helps with fitness!? lol it moves his pelvic up and down. An 1800's verson of the treadmill.



I wonder how many children growing up realise not so long ago kids had to work for their living, generally in crap jobs that were unsafe. Lots of kids would go into mines from 7-8 years old onwards, long days, poor conditions, low pay. At least they got gloves :)
