Beginning in 1869, British charitable societies removed children from slums and orphanages in congested industrial cities and brought them to Canada to serve as cheap farm and domestic labour. "Homes" were set up across the country to house the girls and boys until they were placed in service. Monitoring of the children after placement was superficial, leaving them susceptible to mistreatment. Child emigration was discontinued in the 1930s when the Great Depression created a labour surplus in Canada. By then, up to 100,000 children had been transported. This building, formerly known as St. George's Home, was one of many distribution centres in Ontario.

Cuan an Bhainbh Ar Oileán an Bhainbh, leath slí idir an da bhaile dhaingne a bhí ag na Lochlannaigh i Loch Garman agus i bPort Lairge, a thainig na Normanaigh i dtír, faoi cheannas Robert fitz Stephen, sa bhliain 1169. Tá an eaglais ar lathair an bhaile a d'fhás anseo níos deireanaí, agus ó chúl na heaglaise tá radharc ar an oileán. Sa chairt a bronnadh ar Ros Mhic Thriuin sa 13ú haois tugadh don bhaile sin "na pribhléidí agus na saoirsi ceanna a bhí ag buirgéisigh an Bhainbh agus Chill Chainnigh." Ach pluchadh caineal an Oileain sa 16ú haois agus chuaigh an calafort agus an baile i leig (d'ainmnigh rolla na gciós cúiteach ag an am naoi sráid sa bhaile). Ina dhiaidh sin lean an bhaile ag cur bheirt theachta chun no parlaiminte go dtí 1801 thoghtai iad le taobh an aon simléir amhain a bhi fágtha. Bannow On secluded Bannow Island, mid-way between the formidable Danish settlements of Wexford and Waterford, the Normans under Robert Fitzstephen landed in 1169. The island is to be viewed from behind the church which marks the site of the resulting town. The 13th century Charter of New Ross granted 'the same privileges and liberties as those enjoyed by the Burgesses of Bannow and Killkenny'. But during the 16th century, the Island Channel silted up, and both port and town-whose quit-rent Roll then records nine named streets-died. Yet Bannow continued until 1801 to return its two members to parliament-elected around the only chimney still standing.
