Pearson's Fresh Air Fund was a national charity which organised day trips and holidays to the countryside for poor city children. The Birmingham branch organised holidays to places like the Lickeys, Rubery and Sutton. Day trips went by tram from Suffolk St. Over 900 children took part in each day trip, the tags helped the organisers identify all the participants.
