Many people are gathered round, including a man in oriental dress with two children. This scene at Scutari, called Üsküdar, a large and densely populated suburb of Istanbul, on the Anatolian shore of the Bosphorus right opposite the heart of the great city. Florence Nightingale reformed hospital nursing during the 19th Century. She trained as a sick nurse and was invited to take nurses out to tend the wounded in the Crimean War (1854). Her sanitary reforms there lessened cases of disease. She was subsequently consulted by foreign governments at war as an authority on hospital administration and sanitation. After Jerry Barrett's oil in the National Portrait Gallery titled 'Florence Nightingale Receiving the Wounded at Scutari 1856 The Mission of Mercy'. The following figures have been identified: Sir William Linton, (to the left of the archway); Sir Henry Knight Storks, (to his right); Alexis Benoit Soyer, (in white to Nightingale's left).
