Providence Hospital Washington DC

Photo Details

The nursing staff of Providence Hospital in Washington DC around 1895.

I don't have any more information on this photo but I just love the nurses' uniforms and caps. They actually look like maids, which nurses may often feel they are - although having worked in hospitals myself and knowing many nurses, they are actually often more knowledgeable than the doctors.
