I love this one, not only because it is local, but because of some unique things in the photo itself.  The photo was taken at night so a longer exposure was needed to capture a good image.  As a result you capture blur from motion — most notably in the boy just to the right of center and in the center boy’s hand as he works the glass.  What you really need to do to appreciate this, however, is zoom in on the boy to the far left — notice anything interesting about his eyes?

November, 1909. “Night Scene, Cumberland Glass Works. Bridgeton, N.J.” Photo by Lewis Hine.
