Description

Nickel-plated, National Health Service issue spectacles. After the establishment of the UK's National Health Service (NHS) in 1948, cheap spectacles became available to all. Although this was largely achieved through government funding, a limited range of frames was available. Fashion frame designs were available for private customers.
