Unknown Nurse From the 40s_ RTP  SFW

No names, I just thought that this was just a nice photo of a nurse out front on the steps of the Old Sacred Heart Hospital.  I had scanned 30 or 40 images from the 1940’s at the hospital back in February, but just never got around to doing anything with them.  So, I thought that I would post a few of them now and see if anyone might recognize any of the girls or maybe the nuns.  Here is another …

Nurses with Nuns_RTP_16 April 14   SFW

The nurse on the left side of the image is one that keeps showing up in some of the images, but I do not know who she is.  She just has a very familiar face for some reason or another, this was at least ten years before I was born so she would not have been someone that I would have known.  This is all of these that I am going to post now, I will save more for later posts.  If any of you nurses from the 1940’s recognize any of these girls, please let us hear from you.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank

The staircase does not look familiar to me, so if anyone out there recognizes the place, please share it with us.  I have a lot of these wedding photos from the 1950’s and 1960’s that I plan to share with you in the future.  Thanks for looking … Frank

I believe that this was made at the Sacred Heart Church…not sure if it was in the school part or the fellowship hall.  I doubt that the building was air conditioned when this photo was taken, so you know it would have been warm in this room.  Even if it was in the winter and the heat was on, you know that wearing this “habit” had to have been uncomfortable .  The head pieces looked uncomfortable and to wear them all day really look restrictive.   Some one told me that the nuns habits were made of wool and they wore the same habit for winter and summer back in the 1950’s and 60’s.   Thanks for looking … Frank
