Babies Maid Nannies Nanny Nurse Nurses Pram Pushing Wheeling Games


EDITORS COMMENTS
This charming Old Maid card from the 1940s features a kindly and smiling Nanny, pushing a pram filled with babying essentials. Dressed in a traditional uniform, complete with a starched cap and apron, she exudes a sense of warmth and nurturing. The young, curious babies in the background add to the playful atmosphere of the game. Old Maid cards were a popular pastime during the mid-19th century and continued to be enjoyed by generations thereafter. The game, which involves shedding pairs of cards and leaving one player with the 'old maid' or 'old man' card, has various origins, but it is believed that it originated in Europe as a simplified version of the popular game, Cucumber Sandwiches. The image of the Nanny Old Maid card captures the essence of the 1940s, a time when nannies and nurses played crucial roles in caring for young children. Nannies, like the one depicted in this card, were often employed by middle and upper-class families to provide round-the-clock care for their children. Nurses, on the other hand, were responsible for the health and well-being of soldiers and civilians during wartime. This Old Maid card is a delightful reminder of a bygone era, when life was simpler, and the role of women, particularly those in caring professions, was deeply valued. The image of the smiling Nanny, with her pram and bundles of joy, is a testament to the enduring bond between caregivers and the children they look after.
