Where Are They Now? Help us uncover more Invalid Carriage history.
The Carrying of Passengers is Forbidden is a Heritage Fund research project led by Dr Simon McKeown, Reader in the MIMA School of Art and Design at Teesside University. The project is uncovering the hidden history of the Invalid Carriage and its users. Working with volunteers and graduates the project has many outputs. We do need your help to answer the question, “Where Are They Now?”
We are asking for your help. We want to fill in the gaps of Invalid Carriage history and heritage, from the Bath Chair to the Invalid Carriages of the 1970's. Did you own one of these vehicles or know somebody who did. Do you have some photographs or any ephemera relating to them? The story of the people who used them is equally important and no detail is too small. If you think you can help us, we would love to hear from you.

Thank you. Kathryn Barnett - Project Producer.
