A comment and another old picture of women

A recent comment on a photo showing the way women used to be but are now:

” You feel an intense sense of loss, but you feel better because you know things were better once, and you think, you start to believe, that somehow there can be a restoration of that better state – after all, here is the proof, sitting right in front of your very eyes! “Things were once nice like this, surely they can be again, right?” “

Good comment, and here is another old photo of how women used to be:

    I can easily see this happening then and overlooked now. Outside of the US, I have heard nurses referred to as “Sister”. Could this be part of the tradition from nursing orders both Anglican and Catholic?

  3. I recommend ‘Call the Midwife’ by the BBC – a good insight into such matters
