Title

Glasgow Eye Infirmary Poster Drawing

Description

Framed poster drawing, probably by William Campbell Nicolson, published between 1927 and 1937 to raise funds for the Glasgow Eye Infirmary. It was found at a jumble sale by Denis Rice of the University of Leicester, who passed it on to the Eye Infirmary. A letter to this effect, dated 1981, is included in the frame.

The poster reads 'Help us to take them out of the shadow; The Glasgow Eye Infirmary; Office 171 West Regent Street' and pictures a young child with cloth wrapped around their head, covering their eyes.
