By H Dominic W Stiles, on 3 August 2012
This week, lacking time for too much depth, we merely offer what we hope will be useful for those interested in the history of Deaf education in the British Isles, namely a list of educational establishments in 1897 from Silent Messenger. We cannot be sure that there were not more private schools that were not included on this list. Click onto the images for a viewable size.
