  1. I am so sorry for the ones who committed suicide as they would of been just so tormented.
    I thought that terrible and awful painting had been destroyed.

    1. Thanks Lesley for your comment. For me, it’s not the painting that’s awful – it is the haunting human horror it’s depicting that is awful.

  2. I know the human horror as I went through it as I am in the boat. Painting needs to go as a dreadful dark and awful thing. Most don’t like it and that has been said by them.

    1. Dear Lesley,

      I have replaced the image with that of my brother, who went through a hideous time in that place. My apologies if it upset you. My heart goes out to you as a survivor of that hell hole, Wolston Park.

  3. That place was a living hell I was placed there at 16. I thought what I suffered at the hands of my parents was bad until I was placed in Osler House.

    1. Unfortunately Debbie children who were victims of child abuse @ parental neglect were punished by a penal welfare system instead of supported – I hear your pain
