A wonderful studio photo of a nurse in full uniform.
Almost a habit, this nurse's uniform is complete with badges. Her career, whether in a hospital or in the military was important enough to her to pose for a studio portrait in full garb.

From the studio of F.W. Medrick in New York, this beautiful photograph is a gelatin silver on heavy paper. We believe this is a studio proof retained by the photographer. We have nearly 150 different photographs of different families all from the Medrick studios, which we acquired from a single collector.

This original vintage print measures exactly 7.5 inches by 9.75 inches.
The second image represents the full photograph.
The first shows the detail of the full photograph.

Every photo that is in my shop marked as “vintage” is just that. It is not a copy of a picture, or a reproduction I’ve made of an original photograph. I do my best to credit the original photographer, but many of the photos I have collected are unmarked. Please forgive this negligence – no ill will is intended.

Because of the varied care and preservation of these photographs, please understand that these are not perfect by any means. I have done my best in my description above to make you aware of any flaws. I hope that the images (photographs and/or scans) above fairly represent the original. I take the photographs in natural light, scan on a common scanner, and do very little editing other than cropping.

All photos will be safely mailed in sealed archival Mylar with board backs to prevent damage.

I gladly ship multiple photos at the same price as single shipping.
You’ll see in the “Shipping Cost with Additional Item” section below, that each additional photo will ship for free.
