I used to live down the hill from this school on Templeton Street, which is off Adams Street. As a child, I was told that the school was more like an orphanage, and I can remember when it was finally demolished. However, I cannot remember ever seeing any children there.

GROWING UP IN THE 50'S, I REMEMBER SITTING ON THE WALL IN FRONT OF THE PROPERTY. I WAS TOLD IT WAS FOR TROUBLESOME BOYS.

The 1920 US Census shows the Daly Industrial School on Train Street of the Dorchester District of Boston. My great aunt Marion Caton is listed there then at age 13, and she was orphaned. It appears to have been a girls-only institution? None of the girls seem to be younger than age 9.

There may be a photo of this building in the James W. Fraser photograph collection at Northeastern University. Found reference on internet Feb 2007.
