EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the moment as children pour out of the School at the Orphan Homes of Scotland in Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire, Scotland, in the late 1800s. Established in 1878 by the renowned Scottish philanthropist William Quarrier, a successful shoemaker from Greenock, the Orphan Homes of Scotland were designed as a 'village' of cottage homes to provide care and education for deprived street children. Quarrier, who developed a deep interest in the welfare of these children, was moved by the plight of the many orphans and destitute children roaming the streets of Scotland during the Victorian era. The Orphan Homes of Scotland were a significant departure from the traditional workhouse model of the time, offering a more nurturing and supportive environment for its residents. The Homes were laid out as a village, with each cottage home accommodating around ten children, providing them with a sense of community and family. The children attended the on-site school, where they received a good education, preparing them for a brighter future. This photograph offers a glimpse into the past, providing a poignant reminder of the important work carried out by Quarrier and the Orphan Homes of Scotland in caring for Scotland's most vulnerable children during the 1870s. The image, with its historical significance and charming Victorian charm, is a testament to the power of charitable initiatives and the enduring impact they can have on individuals and communities.
