my thoughts on all sorts of creative things

Mary Seacole

This is a statue outside St Thomas’ Hospital, London. It was put there this year. It is of Mary Seacole (1805-1881), a nurse of the Crimean War. There is also a quote: “Wherever the need arises on whatever distant shore I ask no higher or greater privilege than to minister to it.”
