Almost Wordless Wednesday ~ Grandma Laws Nursing School

This post may contain affiliate links, my full disclosure can be read here.

My Grandmother Hilda Laws (nee Anderson) (1915 – 2006).  This photo was taken some time in the 1930’s I believe, in New Brunswick, Canada.  Most likely in the Marysville or Fredericton area.  Grandma worked as a nurse all her life and I’ve been told she is wearing a training uniform in this photo.  The building behind her reads Robinson Memorial 1818.
If anyone knows where this building was and anything about the school, I would love to hear from you!

I found a Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna, Ohio that has what would seem to be the right history behind it. The date over the door is 1918, not 1818. In the thirties, the Robinson home became a boarding house where nurses could stay for $15 a month. Here's the link:

Thanks Gail! It's possible, but I don't think my Grandma was ever out side Canada. She was raised and worked in New Brunswick until they moved to Ontario in the late 40's.
