International Nurses Day is celebrated every 12th May, a date which celebrates the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
To celebrate the nurses of St Helens, we would like to share some of our favourite archive photographs of 1950s local nurses that appear in the George Street Photography collection.
Thank you to all nurses for your care, kindness and dedication.
Do you recognise anyone in the photographs or have any stories or memories to share? Please comment below.
The George Street Photography collection is an archive of over 3000 glass plate negatives that were discovered in a former photography studio in St Helens and have been digitised and preserved as part of the St Helens Through The Lens project, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
