Launch of "Elites and Orphans" exhibit - Morrin Centre

Description: Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. – Launch of Elites and Orphans new permanent exhibit at the Morrin Centre. This exhibit explores the diverging experiences of play for elite and poor children amongst Quebec City’s English-speaking population at the turn of the 20th century. From miniature furniture and horse-drawn carriages to dolls and toy tea sets, visitors will be offered a glimpse into Quebec City’s past. Most of the toys on display were donated by Mary Hilda Freeland Stephens (1911–1999) and once belonged to the children of the upper town’s Protestant elite.
To mark the opening of Elites and Orphans, the evening will feature talks by two historians specializing in the cultural history of Quebec City’s working class and elite populations. Be among the first to see these fascinating mementos of childhood! Free admission.
