Photo Number 1441

This is a snowy photo from the antique shop in Moorhead Minnesota.
red Cross winter window and girls Moorhead ant
Two gals and a dog in front of a window with a red cross.  As far as I know Red Cross Classes were taught in public places like schools and medical supplies would have been available there. When cars became more popular and accidents happened there was need of First Aid Stations.  If anyone else knows different information I hope you will share.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come againSmile

From Iggy:
I think the Red Cross signs were used during WWI as a "support our troops" fund-drive.

"For homes, stores, factories and offices 'there is a Red Cross service flag to be displayed in windows.'"

  2. Maybe this was a home on the main road through a small town. Puts me in mind of my great-grandmother's boarding home, which served as community catch-all for a number of services.
