Wallace the Lion


A group of blind children from Sunderland School for the blind and their teacher at Sunderland Museum. 6 boys are sitting on Wallace, the mounted lion and several are holding mounted animals. ?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?.
