Nun waiting on a platform at Kings Cross Station. She is wearing a cornette; a type of starched wimpole worn on the head. This headdress was worn by the Roman Catholic order of the Daughters of Charity making them one of the most widely recognised holy orders. The cornettes were often referred to as wings. The order was founded in 1633 in France and the sisters were one of the first active orders dedicated to serving the sick and poor in the community. The headdress was in use until 1964.
