That's pretty cool. I just learned several things about newsboys I never would've even thought about before.

Some of both. Mostly newspaper articles. One thing I didn't look at was other fansites, since that's their hard work. It'd take too long to list everything, but I'll put up the major sources when I update the site.

Oh, neat question. I know about some of them, although historically speaking they're off by a few years in the movie. When I put up the page about newsboy names...or maybe when I update that page later...I'll mark the ones I know were at the DSLH.

Cookie e-mailed me with a question of general interest, copied here with her permission:

But one quick question, where you said that "carrying the banner" meant to sleep outside, did you get that off the DVD or was in backed up from other research? Cause I'm still convinced it was an error on the dvd, seeing as a banner is a newspaper and it would make sense to carry a newspaper- sell it, but I was just curious if you had any other sources besides the DVD or sites that referenced the DVD.

ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: July 8th, 2006 06:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
From my response:

As for "carrying the banner," it's real. It's given in Helen Campbell's book (see the main site page). Many of the historical newsboy names also come from her book; the filmmakers apparently used her as a resource quite a bit.

That would be cool, but aside from what's already on the site, there isn't much more info on individual newsboys at the DSLH. For many of the boys listed on the site, it's not even recorded if they stayed at the DSLH; all that's known is that they were newsboys, and newsboys slept in a variety of places...at the DSLH, at other LHs, on the streets, at their family's home.

Of course if I do find something later on, you guys will be the first to see it!

This is an incredible site -- I am completely amazed by how much hunting you must have done for all this info. You really care about accuracy and obviously have a passion for this corner of history. You have the most amazing fanfic ever written, and, summed up, you rock my socks kid!

Aw, thanks. There's more to come, so stay tuned for updates.

Updating The Dusk Descending any time soon?

I hope so. I pulled the last chapter (XXII) for personal reasons unrelated to the fic; I'll try to get that back up soon, and then if all goes well, another chapter. And since I never get to reply to your reviews, I'll take this opportunity now to thank you for always being so supportive about TDD.

Re: Love this site!

Hi, glad you enjoyed your visit to No. 9.

Did girls ever dress in mens clothes? I didn't think they did but so many people have sad that they did.

Well, in the latest update to this site there's an entry about girls at the DSLH, involving 1) a girl who dressed as a boy and got away with it for nearly two weeks and 2) several girls who dressed as boys so they could get into the Thanksgiving dinner (but were caught before they could enter). The rules were very strict about that sort of thing. See the "Rules" page for the full stories.

Does that answer your question? If not, just let me know.

Any questions you'd like to see answered?
It appears my Great-Grandfather may have been an orphan. Born in 1857 in up-state NY he appeared on the 1860 census as an orphan and, we think, at the NBLH with O'Conner on the 1870 census. We need to try and track him from LaFargeville to the city. This may get interesting if we find an ancestral tie to the house.
