Apparently Clinton said in the 90’s that “Nurses were just over paid maids” not sure whether she actually said it or whether it’s more of the “idiot bloggers” but at least maids get a nice looking uniform 😉 (sorry nurses)

Two Nurses c 1900

Two Nurses c 1900

This cabinet card was advertised as either two maids or two nurses, judging by the scissors hanging from the belt of the person on the left and her detachable sleeves they are both nurses probably from the 1914 – 18 war. I believe that nurses in the current series Anzac Girls wore such items and the detachable sleeves and petticoats being utilised as bandages in an emergency.

Nurses – 1890’s

Nurses - 1890's

 

 

I recently purchased this cabinet card of three Nurses which was incorrectly advertised as Victorian Maids, the scissors and forceps hanging from the belts should have been a indicator, however I wasn’t disappointed as it is a nice piece of Social History.
