    Wow. This isn’t cute, it’s tragic. Look how radical they aged because of the lack of labor laws! The one on the right looks like he’s in his late 40′s and recently off meth…

    and they look to be about the size of five-year olds, but judging by the teeth on the middle one, I’d say they’re probably about ten in this picture.

    And I wonder if any of them fought in World War II- they’re just about the right age to – makes me appreciate how easy my life is in comparison.

    They look pretty good to me, actually. Happier, healthier body mass index than most kids today…
