[Photo Album]: Nurses in Nebraska
Nebraska: 1909. Near Fine. Hardcover. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 10" x 7". Stapled black paper album. Contains 43 sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" to 6" x 8", some with captions. Very good with tiny tears with near fine photographs. A modest but interesting photo album kept by a young nurse in Nebraska in 1909. The album opens with a group photo of nurses in uniform standing on the steps of a hospital. This is followed by two pages of portrait photos of each individual nurse, some from photo strips. A few of these photos are captioned with the name of the nurse as well as where she originally came from including New York and Wisconsin. Candids of the nurses show them caring for children and newborns as well as posing in the wards together. Six photos show a young woman dressed in pants with captions which read "just a little sport after a hard night at Old Harlem." When they weren't working at the hospital the women are photographed boating, taking walks, and playing tennis. One photo of a young man laying in a bush reads, "o u did not! Did u? U did so." The final photo shows a photo of five nurses on the hospital grounds. A pleasing collection of nursing photographs.
