The Swallows Childrens Home

Postcard from Jill Goodchild

Dated 1922 Padgett postcard taken along by the lake of the 'Swallows Childrens Home' with Miss James' Girls home with the flag and tents behind.

Another view of the home. This time you can read the notice on the gate. 'Children's Home in memory of Mr James Dunn'. Does anyone know who Mr James Dunn was?
