"(Germ.) Munich. Boys' industrial home. 50 x 30. Nine young waifs are here at work in the shoemaking department of the home, under the eye of the benevolent brother who is now scanning the work of the youth standing near him. His wards look well-fed, happy, and not overworked. This admirably painted picture conveys a strong, direct lesson in practical charity."
