Westbury-upon-Severn Workhouse 1925.

Image: Nurses at Westbury Workhouse in the 1920s (31k)

Tania added : "This is a photo taken at Westbury work house, I think when it was used to look after sick people rather than poor people. I think it was taken around 1925??

Left to right: Nurse Great, Ivy Cooper, Doris Hyde (nee Jackson).

Doris was born in 1904, Her first married surname was Phillips then her 2nd married name was Hyde".

Stephen Warner added (August 2013): "... On looking for an old photo of Westbury Work House where my late Uncle resided, I see this photgraph of 3 nurses, the nurse named Doris Hyde, looks like a person I knew as Rose Beard, but on reading the info it seems that the person who dontated the photo seems to know of Doris's connection and her married names so I am probably wrong"
