Ashfield Infants Home

Home first established on Victoria Street, Darlinghurst to cater for foundlings and to provide accommodation for unmarried mothers and their babies. Two years after it was founded, one of its supporters, Thomas Walker, suggested the home be moved to larger premises, a house called 'Gorton' on Henry Street, Ashfield.
