Title : River Wear Bridges

Description : Blind visitors to Sunderland Museum, examining models of the old and new bridge across the river Wear. “To them, their fingers are eyes” From 1913, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ‘eagerly accepted’.
