Newborn Nursery, St. Joseph's Hospital, Bloomington
1929

Seen here are Sisters M. Eligia Trumper (right) and M. Aloysia Plum in the newborn nursery at old St. Joseph's Hospital, back when it was located on Bloomington's west side. Note the stork in the back corner and the Christ Child statue opposite Sister Trumper.

In 1968, St. Joseph's relocated to the city's far east side along what is now Veterans Parkway. Today, the hospital is known as OSF St. Joseph Medical Center
