Original Photo Album from an Indian nurse's training days

Kasauli, India: [s.i.], 1956-57. Very Good. Item #28766

Kasauli, India: [s.i.], 1956-57. Oblong quarto; original string-tied decorated silver boards filled nearly to completion with one hundred seventeen (117) black and white photographs with captions to most written in manuscript. Boards rather soiled with light edgewear. Binding sound. A few photographs missing; some marginal chipping; tape repair to every page near gutter though text and images largely unaffected; overall Very Good.

Intriguing look into the life of a young nurse in mid-1950s India. The photos, often captioned by our subject, show us the friends, work, and leisure of a young nurse working in a recently independent India. We see a play, "Shriman," performed, an Independence Day celebration, and many scenes with her friends and co-workers, often accompanied by amusing commentary: "All dead look - Cheer Up!!!" or "Oh! My! One man with this OCTOGAN - Terrible."

Price: $450.00
