Here we see elderly blind workers making baskets at the council’s workshops on Portsdown Hill, Portsmouth.

The facility attracted people from across the area.

The city was a leader in the care of the blind and in 1935, when this picture was taken, it opened the Jubilee Home for the Blind at Wymering.
