Name of one of the boys in the picture

The name of the boy second to the right of the conductor and holding the baratone horn is Donald Richard Sewell. He is my father. He was there from 1914 to 1922. I have many original pictures of activities at the orphanage including a large picture of the printing press room an machinery. My father had a accident in the print shop and as a result, lost his left arm. I also have many letters written by him to his sister telling of his life there. Respectfully submitted, Arnold Sewell
