Liverpool Memorial to Florence Nightingale, 1913
Display No. 197
The Liverpool Memorial to Nightingale was erected in 1913 at the Central Home of the Liverpool Queen Victoria District Nursing Association.
The panel with Nightingale’s face is a celebration of her “great personality, but at the back of her power lay her wonderful sympathy, her enthusiasms, which were always young, her simple and modest attributes, and her perfectly ordinary courtesy.”
