Happy Kanelbullens Dag!
Today is celebrated as cinnamon roll day in Sweden, but the coiled confectionary also enjoys widespread popularity in the US. While the origin is most likely Swedish, this bakery owned and operated by German immigrants in Southern Minnesota sports a pan of the swirled pastries (see second shelf, left of center). This picture is a part of the DOCUMERICA series, which are held at the Archives.

Taken by investigative photographer Lewis Hine on September 20, 1911, the photograph is one of a series of black-and-white prints given to the Children’s Bureau by the National Child Labor Committee. The almost five hundred photographs represent a fraction of the approximately 5,000 photographs Hine took for the committee to document working and living conditions for children.
