Helen with a little girl listening to the radio, 1938
Helen is showing Lillian Switzer, a ten year-old blind student, how to use a huge radio that has Braille symbols. The radio is almost as tall as Lillian! Helen is sitting down, with her right arm around Lillian's shoulders. She is wearing a dark ribbed shirt and skirt and a small dark hat with feathers. Lillian is operating the radio, wearing a light sweater and dark pleated skirt. The picture was taken in 1938, in the Helen Keller Room of AFB's old offices on 16th Street.
