Henry Wellcome was an avid collector of 'relics': personal items formerly owned by notable figures in medical history, including Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). Nightingale is remembered for the radical changes she brought to nursing after her visits to field hospitals during the Crimean War (1853-56).
