Ticket for Social Levee at City Hall, No. 3 Amoskeag Mill, 1848

Description
This fall evening event held by the young lady workers of Amoskeag Mill number 3 may have marked the need to use artificial light in the mills during the winter as the days got shorter. The artificial lighting elongated the workday, increasing owner profitability, but open flames created more dangerous conditions for workers.
