So, the actual post got deleted....
I saw the Carousel of Progress the other day, and noticed something very disturbing. In the very first scene, the Valentine's Day scene, there is an unnamed character that never appears again. When the "room" with the mother, Sarah, lights up and shows her doing the laundry, there is a little girl just standing there working a pump.
So who is she supposed to be? A slave? Give me your thoughts

I think it's her daughter using an early washing machine.

Huh, never noticed that, Kevin. But conspiracy? That's a little click-baity, isn't it? :D

I don't believe it is the same characters in every scene. I took it as the kids of the scene before.

What about the Boxing Grandma??? Killed by the sleeping Grandpa??

What really happened to Cousin Orville?

What is a Saspirlla????

Well, this is a first... the words conspiracy and a theme park attraction don't usually intersect.

Nice plug, TH!

Agree with Chris. Probably a daughter doing typical early 1900s chores.
Besides, would having a slave in a "American progress" ride defeat the ride's purpose?
