• Interesting nurse roundel

    Ive seen this years ago on West 12th street, the old St Vincent’s student nurses residence building, built in 1924 it features
    two entrances with these roundels depicting a nurse’ portrait. As it turns out, they are almost exactly the same size as my wolf roundel and my tigress roundel- about 20″.
    I really like this design, I may very well add it to my list of possible models to do.

    By the time this building was built in 1924 the facades were starting to get plain and devoid of ornaments, this building’s only real attraction is the entrance, the upper floors are just plain bland brick, nothing exciting at all.
