Sepia Saturday 196 - mother's nurse

I don't have anything related to a doctor to share, but I do have a nurse related, vintage postcard, so I'm almost on theme for this week's Sepia Saturday. The postcard was published by Raphael Tuck in the Flemish Cottage Homes Series III, and the postcard artist is J.A.Heyermans. I would have thought that Flemish Cottage Homes was quite a small niche, but as this would seem to be from the 3rd series, then I guess it was more mainstream in 1905 when the postcard was published.

As usual 100's of vintage post cards can be found on my web site

  1. Cute card. My kids were always good to me whenever I was sick - which wasn't all that often, thank goodness. They brought me things and volunteered (!!!) to help around the house. As soon as I was standing on my own two feet again, however, things went back to 'normal'. Oh well.

  3. The world is so much better with nurses! They ease the pain and help the gain of health. A most lovely postcard.

  4. I'm one who wants to be left alone when feeling puny, but my husband wants a nurse maid for sure! :-)
