Query identifying photo location
« on: November 21, 2017, 06:33:03 PM »
I purchased this PC photo from ebay of group of nurses dated 27th May 1952. I wonder if anyone can identify anyone from photo or the location of training school.
The names are on rear of card. (Hope attachments appear)

I don't know if 1952 was start or end of training period. I have tried searching the nursing register for names from 1952 - 1956 but unfortunately I get several of same initials or names from different places and as yet none appear at same hospital.

I wonder if anyone in this group may know anyone (would be too much to think a member is in this actual photo) but hoping someone knows someone who knows someone.

Thanks
Eric

Hi Eric, I must admit I tried to ID this when it was on EBay and similarly failed to find any convincing link.I broadened my ancestry search to 1955 +- 5 years and got a few hits for later with two for Liverpool children's hospital but I'm not convinced.My thoughts are possibly a cadet group so younger than usual and perhaps more dropped out and decided not to train? IT is unusual to see so few fail to qualify so sorry I'm stumped too! Good luck

Hi.

I don't think that this was a cadet group - maybe a little older.  About the 50's feels right though.  Beyond that I too am stumped...

However, I would be more than willing to add this group to the next SoN News page - some of you will be aware of my penchant for using digital images and I would love to try just a little magic on these photographs.  Who knows Christmas is en-route and I am desperate to finish the page I am working on!

*With permission I will give it a go...

Very Best,
Will.
