Original Fence Surrounding the former Dafoe Hospital

Once topped with barbed wire, this fence kept crowds at bay and protected Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Émilie, and Marie from the threat of kidnapping. Not even their parents had a key — Oliva and Elzire Dionne were required to ring a bell and wait for the gate to be unlocked in order to visit their daughters.
