That Florence Nightingale looks a right misery in this picture…
However, maybe it’s 1859 and she’s a bit tired from writing her book Notes on Nursing
It was a good read all things considered. It certainly helped spread the word about how to help improve hospitals in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Seriously, it’s good. Read how she writes the longest introductory sentence in the world just to say open some windows but don’t freeze the bejeezus out of your patient.
Good stuff Flo.
