Research Facts
Reproduction uniform made for Kingston General Hospital Nurses' Alumnae to represent uniforms that were first worn by Kingston General Hospital Nursing School students in the 1886s until the mid-1890s.
Throughout the twentieth century, nurses' uniforms changed, in particular with the rising of hemlines. The nurse's uniform was generally white, and Kingston General Hospital uniforms were once known for "turkey red" hemlines. Different levels of nursing education had different uniforms, in particular different caps, as graduate nurses had black bands on their caps to indicate their level of education.
