Abstract:
This is a hand-tinted French real photo studio postcard. It depicts a French nun, who is also a nurse, leaving a military hospital. She is dressed in a long gray dress, tied at the waist, with a large white collar, and long gray veil. She carries her belongings tied up in a cloth in her right hand. Her left hand holds a handkerchief and she looks sadly downward. A French soldier in blue and red uniform, is saluting her. The postcard refers to the fact that at the start of World War I military authorities believed it inapproriate for religious nursing orders to serve at military field hospitals.
