Mary Malchiodi Of The Fourth Ward: Part 1

Lewis Wickes Hine has more than one picture of Mary in his study of newsboys and newsgirls over 100 years ago. They can be found on the Library of Congress site I believe her name was misspelled there because the census has no one named Malchade, whereas Malchiodi seems to be the closest common spelling. It looks like Mary might be wearing a sibling's pair of shoes since they look far too big for her.
