Sunday Stamps II - 40

It's Sunday morning so it must be time to check out Sunday Stamps at See it on a Postcard.

I last showed these stamps in 2013 at the cusp of a Government shutdown. As I said then:

This is a group of four stamps from a larger set.  Most of the photographs were taken by Lewis Hine, a famous photographer.  According to Wikipedia, "Lewis Wickes Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing the child labor laws in the United States."
More images can be found at http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/nclc/.
