Half-timers were children who were employed to work half-time. The Factory acts in 1833 and 1844 reduced children's working hours to 6 hours a day and demanded at least 3 hours a day compulsory schooling. This system was eventually phased out after 1918 and replaced by full time education for all children under the age of fourteen.
Taken just prior to World War One. This could be around the time of the Mill strikes
