Working at everyday life

Working in Paterson: Occupational Heritage in an Urban Setting

I always thought that work is never just work...

Welcome to Paterson, New Jersey, cradle of the Industrial Revolution in America and the largest silk manufacturing center in the nation. Here you can see and listen to the people who take care of nails and hair in life and death, people who work with machinery, people who, after work, make clothes for themselves and others, people who come from places far away, people who prepare food, people who read palms - and just about everyone else.
