FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE (2)

Location: Laguna Honda Hospital
Artist: David Edstrom

Florence Nightingale was an English nurse and has been hailed as the ‘founder of modern nursing.’ She became famous during the Crimean War, where she organised the tending to wounded soldiers and became an icon known as "The Lady with the Lamp" making rounds along wounded soldiers at night. You can find her cast-stone sculpture made by David Edstrom in 1937, at the Laguna Honda Hospital.
