Foundling Hospital Gift Cot

This is a copy of an illustrated article published in The Argus on Saturday 25 August 1923, p.27. The image shows staff and children from The Foundling Hospital and Infants' Home.

The original caption reads: 'Of the displays made by charitable institutions sharing in the Wattle Day collection yesterday, none made greater appeal to the sympathies of the public than that of the Foundling Hospital and Infants' Home, East Melbourne and Beaconsfield, of which Mrs. Montague Cohen is president. Sister Sutherland is seen in charge of a gift cot in Collins street, near the Equitable Building corner. The twins in the cot were the centre of much interest throughout the day.'
