Labor Day Photo from Mecklenburg Iron Works, Charlotte, NC

20080901Mecklenburg.bmpHere’s a neat Labor Day photograph sent in by Ann Rohleder Stephens: 

These workers from the Mecklenburg Iron Works in Charlotte, North Carolina, are taking a break. Two of them are my grand uncles: on the top right is Arthur Leroy Primm (1884-1965) and second from the left on the first row is Arnold Primm (1899-1915). The picture was taken before August 1915 when Arnold was killed in a shooting accident while on a camping trip with friends. This seemed appropriate for Labor Day!
