Description

Harry Baker Brown (Stuart Baker Brown's grandfather). Description given on Pathe website: "Harry Baker Brown has amazing ability to do all kinds of things whilst blindfolded. C/U of newspaper cuttings featuring Harry. We see him having blindfold fitted: first two slabs of dough are placed over each eye, then massive cotton wool pads are bandaged to his head, finally a hood is placed over the top.

Various shots of Harry hammering nails into planks of wood whilst blindfolded. Exterior, various shots of Harry riding a motorcycle with a blindfold on. Various shots of Harry (still without sight) riding bicycle in and out of hurdles. Harry walks over to group of boys cheering, we see him remove his complicated blindfold."
