AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1940 Frank Golding and his two older brothers were admitted to the Ballarat Orphan Asylum as wards of the state. This book provides insights into the reasons why the boys' parents were deemed unfit to care for them which resulted in the boys being institutionalised for most of their childhood.
