I completely adore this wall mural just off Newland Avenue, Hull, on the side of a corner shop. The fact it just appears out of nowhere makes it even more powerful.

The person who kept this album included several pictures of nurses. From the date on the pastedown and the fact that the soldiers are in cold-weather gear, these were probably taken in January-March 1919. The nurse with the glasses appears a few times. 🇨🇦

Give them to the kids they said. Vancouver can't decide what to do with their German War relics; School Board offers to take them; did King Ed & Britannia get one? May 29, 1923 in the Daily World.
