Historical information

Slide photograph of the Harelands dining room from the 1950s or 1960s.
Harelands was a residence run by Melbourne Legacy to take care of children whose fathers were deceased servicemen, and who may have been left orphans, or whose mother may have been unable to care for them herself, or they needed to stay in Melbourne for education.
Harelands generally looked after children up to the age of 14. Harelands was built in the Queen Anne style and is now heritage listed.
The slides have been photographed to make digital images and moved to archive quality sleeves. In many cases the original images were not well focussed and the digital image is the best available.
