Voices from the Orphan Schools: the Children's Stories by Dianne Snowden | PB
Nearly 6,000 children passed through the Orphan Schools in New Town (Hobart) from 1828 to 1879. Many were not orphans at all, but the children of convict mothers.
This book reveals some of their stories.
Dianne Snowden has shed new light on an important part of Tasmania’s history, and brought to life stories which, though hitherto either unknown or long-forgotten, are part of our story. ~ Saul Eslake.
