Title Children's Industrial Home of New Brunswick - Rear
Date 07/10/1940
Year Range from 1931
Year Range to 1940
Description A rear view of the Children's Industrial Home of New Brunswick. This picture was taken through the wire fence around the back of the property.

Despite the delapidated appearance of the building it looks like the Home was still in use. There is laundry hanging from a line on both the third story fire escape and off to the right of the building. On the fourth floor fire escape one of the doors is open and there is a pillow airing over one of the railings. The pieces of a collapsable metal ladder that would extend the fire escape to the ground appear outside the third floor fire escape railings, on the roof of the second floor balcony.

Prominent on the left of the yard is a swing set. There is a basketball hoop, lacking a net, attached to the top of the back stairs.
