Clara WWI Red Cross Nurse & Florence Nightingale Nurse Dolls
'The Backwash of War' by Ellen N. La Motte. 'The Human Wreckage of the Battlefield as Witnessed by an American Nurse'. She was one of many inspirational women nurses at that time. My mother is also a nurse, nursing is a true vocation for my mother. She is also a member of The Red Cross & recently received her 20 years of service 'Red Cross Medal'. All this was the inspiration I needed to design Clara!
In 2012, my family & I visited the Florence Nightingale Museum, at St. Thomas' Hospital, London, U.K. It was not until I visited this, that I realised what an influence Florence had on nursing. This photo was a postcard I bought from the museum & what I have based my design of Florence on.
