Summary
Volume consists of a compilation of 33 biographical backgrounds of some of the boys in the Home. Although no names are given (the boys are identified by their registration number), each entry is accompanied by a mounted photograph (cut into oval shapes) of the boy being described. Entries are either in the boys' own words or in the third person, presumably as reported to a note-taker. The text is a lithographic reproduction of the handwritten content
