Georgetown Boys Photos

A collection af photographs by Aris Alexanian taken while he worked at a farm and school for orphaned boys from the Armenian Genocide. The farm was located near Georgetown, Ontario. Aris was the assistant superintendent, and helped the boys start a newsletter called "Ararat". The newsletter was written and published by the boys and used as a tool to improve their English skills. The photos are published here for purposes of identification of the boys and as a resource for anyone related to the boys, or interested in the subject.
