Nurse at Howbeck Hospital

What we know about this image :

Picture of nurse Florence Devereux taken at Howbeck Hospital (later Hartlepool General) in the 1930s.  She was a nurse here until she got married when she had to leave. This was the case in those days : a married woman never worked - her job was to look after her husband and raise children.

Apparently, the only person to own a car at the time Florence worked there was a female doctor - unmarried, we presume !

Donor : Maureen O'Donnell
