Central London Sick Asylum c1900

Someone was kind enough to share this picture with me after posting, Central London Sick Asylum c1900 which I bought at a postcards fair,

the Dr and Matron are in both, the person sharing said a relative worked there in the early 1900’s,

it’s always good to be able to add some context to social history postcards that often don’t even have an individual’s name noted.

Miss Morgan.

 

People called her Miss Morgan.

And Miss Morgan was just five feet tall, slender, dressed in drab, fragile looking. There was something Quakerish about her people said.

When she spoke, she did so softly. But “when she issued orders it was with the finality of a Marine drill sergeant.”

Miss Morgan was Julia Morgan. And Julia was an architect. One who graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1894. One who waited for two years for admission into the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris because of her gender. And then became the first woman to graduate. And then she become the first woman to be registered as an architect in California.

In 1904, Julia opened her own architectural firm. Where she shared profits with her workers. And where her career lasted 42 years. Over which she designed about 790 structures, including Hearst Castle.
