Seeing Our History

Can YOU imagine what it would be like to be blind, or partially sighted, a hundred years ago?

‘Seeing Our History’ is an RNIB Scotland project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Our volunteers researched the lives of those referred to as the ‘outdoor blind’ because they didn’t live in blind institutions. The project sheds light on the experiences of outdoor blind people living in Edinburgh, the Borders, and the Lothians one hundred years ago.

Come along to hear more from the project historian Dr Iain Hutchison and RNIB Scotland’s Dr Catriona Burness.
