Autograph book from the Town Hall Hospital, Oxford

Title

Autograph book from the Town Hall Hospital, Oxford

Description

Mrs Green (as I knew her) was my godmother's mother. Lily Green lived in 75 Walton Street, Oxford (not exactly an upmarket area). During the First World War Lily worked at the 3rd Southern general Hospital Oxford (in the Town Hall). I am not sure that she was a nurse. Lily kept an autograph book from 1912 all through her life. There are numerous poems, sketches and autographs from patients (wounded soldiers), colleagues including nurses, as well as family and friends. At the time of the War Miss Green, as she was then, lived at 24 New Inn Hall Street, Oxford. I remember Mrs Green as feisty. She was salt of the earth, and down to earth. She was a small lady, and she had a husky voice (probably a result of heavy smoking!)
