The Scrapbook of Miss B Tyler


Page 3 of the photograph scrapbook which once belonged to Ms Barbara Tyler - Gina O - (an American correspondent) kindly contributed photographs of the the original scrapbook. The book subsequently passed to Keith Haikes an American male nurse who has maintained contact with SoN. Keith also purchased Barbara Tylers' badges and other memorabilia from Gina O.  On with the photographs...

Carleton and Williamson - two names without elaboration - apart from the Nightingale caps that is... These photographs originate from 1933 and it seems unlikely that, after so many years have passed, their identities and what subsequently happened to them will ever come to light.

Photographs of both nurses and patients from Lilian Ward, undoubtedly at St Thomas Hospital, London. 'Money' (nurse) playing a starring role in these particular pictures. But again, who was 'Money' and who was Kitty - the child in the centre picture above - and what of the enigma Barbara Tyler left along with her scrapbook. Who were they all? What eventually happened to them?

aboveŠ Gina O.

All the above photographs were apparently taken at St Thomas' Hospital, London, before Barbara's move to Hydstile. There are many more photographs to examine, starting perhaps with these shots taken at Botley's Park War Hospital in 1940....

It seem highly probable that we will never discover the history of the majority of the people in the photographs. But if anyone knows better, a relative perhaps, please do let us know.

Wemay well be able to find out and document considerably about the hospitals involved and some of the more senior nurses. Whatever every page more of Barbara Tyler's photograph scrapbook published is adding another grain of knowledge, another piece of nursing history, available to all who may have an interest. More pages next time...
