On a recent visit to Walsall Hospital i saw this cast of a lady called Sister Dora...to my shame i had never heard of her but i soon become aware that she was the Florence Nightingale of the local area particularly Walsall...which is to the West of Birmingham.
The two photos i took are not great because of the light but it is a lifesize copy of the bronze statue that was made of her.
The statue i saw takes pride of place in the entrance to Walsall Manor hospital,her life story is better explained in the link below

All the best to you all.:)

History was written by the church and the ruling class for most of written history. History of the ordinary people, of the local communities is a thing of the 20 century. I have to admit that it is this type of Social history that I like to study. :2fun:
