1896 nurse's uniform

This Nightingale School nurse's uniform can be seen in a showcase of the Florence Nightingale Museum in London. It dates back to 1896 and belonged to probationer Helena Riddick (whose photograph is also displayed). The "striped cotton uniform and cap was much smarter than the plain dress worn by the first Nightingale trainees"1.
