Historical Photography Project
An ongoing project to research and showcase photographs in our archives of our First World War blind veterans and those who helped care for and support them. These date from our founding in 1915.
Many of the photographs were taken in Regent’s Park in London, where we were based in our early years. The photographs connect us to the lives of a generation who have now passed on but still serve as an inspiration for our charity today.
Take a look at the most recent photographs and their stories below, or to catch the very latest photo visit our Facebook page some Thursdays for our #ThrowbackThursday.
We're always keen to learn more about our images. If you have any fun facts for us please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
