Newly Discovered Photos of Florence Nightingale

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

To celebrate Florence Nightingale's 193rd birthday this May, the Florence Nightingale Museum displays two never before seen photographs of Nightingale.

The two miniature photographs are informal snapshots of that great Victorian lady, taken in her old age.

The highly personal photographs may have been taken by Nightingale's lady companion Fanny Gibbs and remained in her possession after Nightingale's death.

Fanny lived with Florence Nightingale at her now-demolished home in South Street, London in the last few years of Nightingale's life.
