This Day in History: Aug 15, 1858: English author and poet, E. Nesbit, is born

Edith Nesbit (married name Edith Bland; 15 August 1858 – 4 May 1924) was an English author and poet; she published her books for children under the name of E. Nesbit. She wrote or collaborated on over 60 books of fiction for children, several of which have been adapted for film and television.

Electric trams were one of the status symbols of such boroughs at the time - a sign that the new 'power' of electrical generation and supply was available in a progressive town. Car 49 was one of the first batch of 50 cars delivered for opening in 1904 - and this image is before the class, built by G F Milnes on Brush 'A' type trucks, were fitted with top covers…

Nurses' Home, Howards Rd, Plaistow

Part of one of the hospitals in the Plaistow district of east London. As the address is Howards Road, I guess this was part of St Mary's Day Nursery and Hospital for Sick Children, though by this time it had a gynaecology ward as well (see excellent website for Lost Hospitals of London). The card itself was posted in 1904 by a student nurse to friend/family in Painswick, near Stroud. Rural Gloucestershire must have felt a million miles away. ezitis.myzen.co.uk/stmarysplaistow.html
