Maggioni Canning Company in Port Royal, South Carolina
This group of children shucked oysters for 4 hours before going to school for half a day, then returned to schuck oysters for another 3 hours at the Maggioni Canning Company in Port Royal, South Carolina.
L. P. Maggioni and Company first began operation in 1870 and was started by an Italian immigrant. It's now South Carolina’s largest provider of wild harvested bushels and single oysters. So a big thanks go out to all the children who had to put in their school days to make this happen
