Domino Sugar Workers, 1930s
The Brooklyn Historical Society and the Brooklyn Public Library have teamed up to create Worklore, an exhibition that "explores the work lives of Brooklynites as they made, and continue to make, their living in the borough". The site includes a number of fantastic pictures - including those seen here - that document the working lives of women, immigrants and African-Americans, among others.
