sturdy nurse


15 December 1925, Belgium
Charity for Tuberculosis
design: Constant Dratz

I fell off my bicycle yesterday and had four stitches in my knee.  The nurse at the accident and emergency unit of the local hospital was very reassuring and highly professional.  She was very comforting and made a shocking ‘stitching session’ endurable.

This set of stamps from 1925 Belgium is depicting a sturdy nurse with supportive energy, appealing for a charity for people suffering from Tuberculosis.  This campaign was continued until the 1950’s, when the disease was almost exterminated in the Western World.
