Title : Hayfield Here We Come

Description : Sunderland blind children in a hayfield with their carers. 18 of the 22 had never been in one before and several had not been in a motor. All but one, felt the shape of a cow for the first time, and were alarmed at its size. July 1924 “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’.
