Three Girls on Street by Lewis Hine ( c. 1910)

The photograph, titled “Three Girls on Street” by artist Lewis Hine, was taken around 1910. It captures a moment of interaction between three young girls on a city street. The image, in black and white, features the three girls standing closely together. One of the girls is eating something, while the other two seem to be engaged in conversation. The girls are dressed in clothing that suggests the era of the early 20th century with details such as puffy sleeves, high collars, and full skirts.
