Description
 
This is a really nice, 2 document, U.S., female grouping. It is dated November 10, 1918. It is also one of the LONGEST titled sets that we have ever seen. Excepting for it's odd capitalization technique and very LONG title length, the title reads: "Girls who carried individual service flags each in honor of one of the 38 men of the Chambers Memorial Presbyterian Church at Rutledge, PA at the dedication of stars on the service flag of the church November 10, 1918". WOW......what a mouthful all of that is! Be that as it may, this is a fine photo/grouping depicting many females in uniforms of the period. The certificate is in a LOW GOOD CONDITION, showing some of the usual period aging, some light edge damage, and some stains from where it has been mounted on a backing piece of cardboard. As for the photograph, it is in a solid GOOD CONDITION, also showing some period aging, some light edge damage, and a few light surface marks, etc. Both items are mounted in a plastic and glass frame, and each item has then been pinned down without any pin holes in the documents. All of this was done on professional, museum grade, acid free paper.

Comments from the Curator:

This museum has a great many female items that are slowly being put up to purchase, and this is one of those neat little sets. This mini - grouping set is very rare in that it shows a great many, very young adolescent and teenage girls dressed in period nurses uniform garb. Period adult, females in uniform photos are rare enough these days, but photos of younger girls in uniform are very rare indeed. That is why we originally purchased this 2 piece set in the first place. The certificate lists all of the names of the "goils" in each row. The certificate then goes on to list the name of each of the 38 soldiers that each "goil" is honoring with a star flag. How beautiful is that! The wide variety of nurses outfits and headgear variations depicted is a giant plus for collectors of such rare and interesting uniform memorabilia. And please note: the star flags are often called today "Son In Service Flags" by collectors. Each star found on such flags represents 1 soldier in the service of their country. This is a nice, nostalgic, little 2 piece grouping for the uniform lovers out there.
