Aunt Mary says…[Bindoon]
Western Mail
Charles Harper, J.W. Hackett, James Gibey, for the Western mail office, Perth, 22 April 1954, p. 33

This article from the Western Mail is typical of newspaper items that were used for fund-raising purposes, to interest people in donating to a Children's Home. The reporter, 'Aunt Mary', praises both the Bindoon Boys' Town institution and her 14 year-old guide for the visit, Robert Taylor. In later years, Robert (Bob) Taylor wrote a book about his experiences at Bindoon. Bob and his wife, Carol, have also been interviewed for the 'Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants oral history project'.
