Want to see Florence Nightingale’s ambulance carriage?

There is an intriguing new exhibit up at http://apps.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/digitalgallery/index.cfm from the Zwerdling Postcard Collection at the National Library of Medicine. The exhibit has over 500 postcards from the US and around the world, featuring nurses. Some are from advertisement campaigns, others black and white candid photographs. Hope you enjoy!
