Mothers and babies gathered outside St. Helen's Hospital.

March 1909

The hospital, a wooden building in Durham Street, Sydenham, had been opened about two years earlier. It was a maternity hospital for the wives of working men. The hospital was, like other hospitals, named St. Helen's to commemorate the birthplace of the recently deceased Premier, Richard John Seddon.

Midwifery Trainees at Christchurch Women's Hospital

1950s

Don't know much about this other than what my mother, Eve Allison, (nee Gorrie) has written on the back - "Midwifery trainees at Christchurch Women's Hospital". Late 1950s/early 1960s is my guess.
