Florence Nightingale 1858 - this is one of my favourite pictures of her. I love the serious, thoughtful expression.

Florence Nightingale, OM, RRC was a celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence while serving as a nurse during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers.

Mary Seacole was a Jamaican nurse who risked her own life to treat the wounded in the Crimean War. As Mary was black, Florence Nightingale turned her away several times, so she set up her own 'British Hotel'  and worked round the clock to nurse the soldiers.  Often she would go out into the field to treat them too.  A remarkable woman who is, at last, getting some recognition for her hard and dangerous work.

Mary Seacole Jamaican Nurse who spurned by indignant Florence Nightingale, attended the wounded British army in the Crimean war. She was feted as a heroine and then her legacy expunged by the Legacy of Nightingale.

On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane.

My own Florence Nightingale display. We drew around a child for Florence. Before starting the topic, the children asked questions which they wanted to find out about Florence. We tuck them around her and then put up the answers when we found them out. This History topic was mainly linked to English where the children wrote information booklets.
