Florence Nightingale Featured Print

Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was born in Italy. She moved to England with her wealthy family and was educated at home by her father. Although it was not deemed suitable for ladies of Florence's social standing to become nurses, she believed that it was God's chosen path for her. She trained in Kaiserswerth, near Dusseldorf and then returned to England to take a post at a Harley Street surgery. Florence Nightingale was sent along with 38 nurses to the Barrack Hospital in Scutari to assist with medical support. As she cared for the troops she gained much respect, writing letters home on the soldiers behalf and fighting to improve the sanitary conditions of the field hospitals. When Florence returned from the Crimea she received a hero's welcome. She published two books about her opinions on hospital reforms and campaigned for better quality nursing training until her death in August 1910

Jeakes Drying Closet

A portable clothes drying closet which was to be sent to the Crimea, for use in the hospital in Scutari. The manufacture of the closet by William Jeakes, of Bloomsbury, was funded by philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts, who also sent an engineer to accompany the closet to Scutari. It was apparently capable of drying 1000 articles of linen in twenty-five minutes, and also incorporated a washing trough and wringing machine. Date: 1855
