Title : Charabanc Outing

Description : July 1924. Children from Sunderland School for the blind going on an excursion to the hayfields. The charabanc is parked outside the Central Library and Museum in Sunderland. Many of the children had never been in a motor before. “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’.
