Nuns in Front ofNurses Home 2 _ RTP _SFW

This building on 12th Avenue used to be the home of the old Sacred Heart Hospital Nursing School.  I am not sure of the years that it was built and was the school and home for the nurses of Sacred Heart Hospital.  From 1969 until around 1979, it was the home of the Academy of Arts and Sciences … this was were I went to high school for 10th, 11th and 12th grades and graduated in 1971.  I believe there were 55 kids in my class.  If you look real close you will see three nuns and two nurses in this photo, which was made sometime in the 1950’s, I would guess.  I have posted a view from the other side earlier, but this is the first from the south end looking north.  If you happen to know the years when this was the nursing school, please let us know … Thanks for looking … Frank

Nuns in Front of Old Hospital 2_SFW_FHP_July 11

Here is a group of nuns standing in front of the old Sacred Heart Hospital.  I do not know anything about this photo or why it was made.  My guess it was for some type of promotion or maybe a publicity photograph, however I know that when this photo was taken in the 1950’s, hospitals did not promote themselves like they do now.  Thanks for looking … Frank

Chapel in the Old Sacred Heart Hospital …

with 7 comments

This is still one of my favorite images from the old hospital.  I ran it through a filter … Lucis Art Filter … and this filter really brings out the detail in images.  Just look at the altar and all of the trim around the ceiling.  Believe it or not, I can still remember this chapel in the old hospital.  The room itself was not very large, maybe 15 x30 feet.  I have several prints of this in the works right now … check back with me later and I will let you know how and where you can view them.  If any of you remember this chapel in the old hospital, let us hear from you.  Thanks for looking … Frank

Group at old Sacred Heart Hospital …

with 2 comments

This group has nurses, nuns and ” Waves / Wacs ” ( not really sure ) in it, so this photo must have been made during WW II.  You see the Red Cross flag pinned-up to the wall in the background, so maybe this was some type of enlistment / recruitment meeting.  I just thought it was an interesting photo.  Thanks for looking …

Playing Ball …

Here are some kids playing ball in the park that is diagonal from the hospital.  The park is named ” Cordova Square ” and I posted a image of it covered in snow several posts back.  This photo was made in the mid-1930’s and I have several different versions worked up of this same print.  I will post some of them in the near future.  The baseball diamond was taken down in the 1940’s sometime and I have a story to share about that and I’ll do that when I post the photo.  Notice how the dog is right there in the game!  Thanks for looking …

Nurses at old Sacred Heart Horpital …

leave a comment »

Just a group of nurses at the old Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola Florida.  No names of nurses and no date.  Not sure of the area of the hospital that this was taken in, but it could be in the recovery room?  It could be the operating room, but I sort of doubt it.  And I also do not have a date, but I am going to say late 1930’s or earl 1940’s.  Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome …

Nurse with Newborn …

This nurse and newborn were in the old Sacred Heart Hospital sometime back in the 1950’s.  I do not have any information about who the nurse or the baby were … the baby looks small, but clean and healthy.  If anyone recognizes the nurse, please let me hear from you.  Thanks for looking …
