Eloquent portrait of a beautiful young nurse from Chicago. This portrait was photographed by the Chambers Studio at the Republic Building on 209 South State Street.
The United States entered the war on the side of the Allies in 1917. Thousands of Cook County men served in all branches of the military, while many women volunteered as nurses with the army and the American Red Cross. Most served along the Western Front in France and Belgium, helping to end a bloody stalemate and achieve an Allied victory in 1918. Those who died were originally buried overseas, but many were later reinterred in Chicago-area cemeteries.
The portrait measures 6’ x 10 inches.
