1920 St. Vincent de Paul
Nuns of the Sisters of Charity of St. Paul, on the lawn of 1153 Wellington Street in Hintonburg, the site of the St. George’s Home for Boys. This “home” was a basically a distribution for boys removed from industrial cities — and often their families — in England. The boys would then become indentured labor, mostly on Canadian farms, until they reached the age of 18.
As many as 100,000 boys and girls were transported to Canada by Catholic and Protestant organization between 1869 and 1935, when this home was closed. (LAC Topley 106034)
