Subtitle, A Romance of Faith. Quarrier, starting with charitable donations, began to build cottages in Scotland in the 1870s for homeless children. By the 1890s there were thirty five cottages housing over 1500 orphaned and bereft children. Each cottage had a ‘mother’ and ‘father’ and each child was taught self-reliance and life and trade skills. Originally known as the Orphaned Children Homes of Scotland, this foundation became known as Quarrier. Black and white photographs.
