Research Facts
Catherine Raymont had this uniform signed by the doctors and nurses of Connell 10 after she graduated from Queen's University, Nursing Science, in 1977.
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.
