Research Facts
The binder was made for the donor's father, born in 1892 in Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario, and used for his brothers, 1892-1902; binders were used until ca. 1950 to bind the baby's umbilical area, probably because of a traditional belief that if it were not bound, the umbilicus would not heal properly after birth, or an umbilical hernia would occur.

Research Facts
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. Nurse’s uniforms had many elements, and some had detachable collars, bibs, and cuffs. Nurses would often remove their cuffs when they got in the way of tasks, but would put them immediately back on when superiors or the public were around.
