Waltham Orphanage, Austin Street, Waltham

circa 1930

This building was originally a private residence which was extended in 1905 to house children moving from the orphanage at Lyttelton. Later, under the Child Welfare Amendment Act 1927, it was registered as a children's home and so received government funding.

Canterbury Orphanage, Governors Bay Road, Lyttelton

Circa 1900

In 1869 the Canterbury Provincial Government's Executive Council decided that the hospital at Lyttelton should become an orphanage. Several additions were made to the large wooden building which was eventually enlarged to 48 rooms and became a familiar landmark at the port. By 1875 120 orphans were in residence. Because it was agreed that the institution be managed according to the provisions of the Industrial Schools Act 1882, the orphanage received government money and was under the charge of the Canterbury Charitable Aid Board. As soon as the boys were old enough they were apprenticed to various trades and the girls became domestic servants. The building was destroyed by fire in 1904 and the orphanage moved to a building in Waltham
