The Nurses' Home steps c.1936-1969
These photographs show how the steps of the Brighton General Nurses Home were used by so many nurses over the years as the place to take photographs of your friends and in some cases the annual nurses prizes winners had a photograph taken on the steps. They were so convenient for group shots as the nurses could stand on the different levels and all could be seen, in some cases the steps were also use for a fun photos. The earliest picture was taken in about 1936 and the nurse is wearing the old Municipal Hospital nurses uniform and badge, the rest cover many years up to about 1969.
It is just a small touch of the history and a little ‘moving’ to look at these pictures and to see how much those steps played a part in the nurses lives and to see the unchanging steps with the changing faces over those many years. In those days there was always laughter both off duty and on duty.
