Paw Prints on Their Hearts: The Pets of Orphan Train Riders
November 20, 2015 -January 1, 2016
Agent Anna Laura Hill worked for the Children’s Aid Society from nearly 30 years. While she completed annual check-ups, on the children under her care, she brought along her trusty camera. Today, over 200 photographs remain as part of the Anna Laura Hill Collection. Throughout, children can be seen enjoying their childhood with their new families. Our riders often spoke of their love for the animals at their new homes so it’s now surprise many children chose to have their pets join them in their photos. The pets range from dogs and cats to chickens and ponies!
