Just curious if there is a record or picture of the home, it seemed big when I was there in the orphanage in the 40;s. I am writing a book and in the end may put in a picture or draw the building. The back area then was fenced in, we were not allowed out, I think the building still stands, I believe west of town center? Two story, winding stairway, girls down, boys up then, had a great summer there after a bad year in a foster home, good. And didn’t have to eat cabbage until I got sick lol.

Once a week, we were paraded down town somewhere for bible school. This is the only time I lived in Stanton. However I had relatives around that area under Marvin.

Thanks Brad
