A Girl 'Seeing'

Here is a young girl who is blind - examining mounted birds at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens.


Charlton Deas, curator at Sunderland Museum was a pioneer in making museums accessible to disabled people, especially blind/visually impaired people. In 1913 he organised a number of handling sessions for both blind adults and children.
