Sepia Saturday 103 : 3 December 2011


I am going for my winter flu jab tomorrow, visiting the nurse at the local health centre. This is in Brighouse, West Yorkshire and not Richmond, Virginia and I will be visiting the nurse rather than her driving out to visit me. But the similarities were enough to make me choose this 1961 photograph from the Adolph B. Rice Studio (part of the Library of Virginia collection on Flickr Commons) for my archive theme picture for Sepia Saturday 103 (post your posts on or around Saturday 3 December 2011). Of course, you don't have to follow the theme - whatever that might be - you can go where you want to. Just stay healthy and enjoy your Sepia Saturday.

An excuse to use these Nurse themed pictures at last! Join here for Anti-gas training and First Aid for the Injured. Oh and you get to wear an iconic uniform too.

I've gone back to childhood again!

I have images of health museum exhibits.

I can't wait to see how people handled this one. I learned last time I'm too literal a thinker.

Another wonderful choice Alan. This photo fits perfectly with my post this weekend. It's the girl in the hat connection.

Already ran my nurse photos but staying in the health and services field, I have a Victorian fire fighter.

I am here - mining a rich vein of medical history.

A wonderful prompt to send me digging into a diary only to find the very best medicine!

Doug Peabody said...

I hope my post gets the stamp of approval. Great theme Alan.

Young children as nurses and a famous photographer got me going...

Hehehe! I saw the word 'health' on the side of that car, and reckoned I'd better not link to my today's post - even though some of the colours in my little photo are shades of sepia!!

Great picture, but alas I couln't theme this week. My only nurse related picture was one I'd already shared back in March.

Wibbo said...

Hi, thought I'd join you all. My photo's not on theme this week but it does make me laugh!

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

A children's hospital from me. I've had the picture a long time and wondered if I'd ever get a chance to use it.

Great prompt which had me meandering all over the place from nurses to pelicans!

Oh this photo is great! It reminds me when I was little and dreamed of growing up oh what will I be? It always seemed the careers with the best uniforms won out!..or best toys...like how cool it seemed to punch all those buttons and play with money! oh those cashiers at fun right!

Mike Burnett said...

Just the chance I was waiting for

I joined thanks to my friend Wibbo, but when I saw the picture was from Brighouse, it made me start- my family is from Halifax, a town not so far from there. I wonder if there are pics of my grandma from her nursing days (about the same time!)

I wish I had this pic for my own website- she's lovely!
