Some of the many toys and books from the collection of the late Mary Hilda Freeland Stephens are now on display in the children’s section of the Morrin Centre library and on its website.

A charming permanent display of toys and tea sets was recently unveiled at the Morrin Centre.

Elites and Orphans explores the different types and styles of toys played with by children of both the upper and lower classes amongst Quebec City’s English-speaking population at the turn of the 20th century.
