  • Short Summary

    Nurses and patients in maternity ward at former home of Empress Eugenie, now a hospital.

  • Description

    Somewhere in England. 1914 - 1918

    Interior shot at the former home of the Empress Eugenie, wife of the late Napoleon III, which is now a hospital. We see a ward with two nurses standing at a table in the centre - hard to tell what they are doing, but one seems to be doing paperwork while the other counts or weighs medicine. We pan right and see a row of beds filled with young women. Seems to be a maternity ward as there is a basket / cradle at the end of each bed. Other nurses help at the bedsides.

    Modified WPA record.
