Postcard featuring a color illustration of several children playing together. Several of the girls are dressed as nurses. One nurse is wearing a bonnet and the others have a headcloth. They also have a red cross on their chest. One nurse looks like she is fainting, and another has just dropped a basin of water. A girl in her underclothes is standing on a bed. She is holding a hand up to her face, and her other hand has a finger that is bandaged. A boy who is wearing a white apron is holding one of her braids up into the air with one hand and holding a green hat with his other hand. Another boy, who is dressed in white and wearing eyeglasses, is holding both of his hands in the air. The other children seem to be looking on and enjoying the scene. Signed by M.L.
