Yes I also have info on St Vincents. My grandmother was placed there in 1909, at age 2 1/2 with her brother who was a year younger. I also contacted Helen Graham and was sent lots of information. She sent me some information on what a normal day would have been like. My grandmother was there until she was 13, at which time, they moved the kids to a different orphanage. My grandmother's name was actually changed when she was placed there (her first name). I don't know when it became her given name, but it did. If you go to the library websites, you can find newspaper articles and photos of some of the events or situations that existed there. It was very sad to read and like you it was a total shock to the family that my grandmother who we were extremely close to, never ever told anyone she was there. She died in 1998. So many questions left unanswered, some things understood for her daughter now 75. Helen Graham said there used to be photos but they were misplaced. I wish they had some - I would love one photo of her as a child. I also contacted the Daughters of Charity who ran St Vincents and St Joseph School of Industry for the girls over 13. I was given a lot of info by them, but mostly photos, and daily activites although they did get me the date of the day my grandmother left the orphange at 15 (St Joseph School of Industry) and the reason why, who removed her also. My grandmother's last name was Franey....
