My industrial age jobs for kids

Today we learnt about what jobs Victorian children use to have in factories. Things like what it says  on this sign.

After I learnt all of this, we went in a deep dark,dusty chimney. Well it wasnt really a chimney it was something for children to see what it was like in those days to go into a chimney. Children used to be chimney sweeps and sent up to clean them out. There was a man who made you look like you had that chimney dust on your face.

I think i'd prefer having a job as a sweeper because going down a mine or in a factory your would get your hands stuck and maybe sliced off by the machine so really that wouldn't be that nice.
