Image Details

Title Sister Benedicta celebrates half a century service at the Poor Clare's Convent in Hereford.
Description Sister Benedicta entered the Poor Clare's Convent fresh from Birkenhead as a 20-year-old. In this image she marks her 50th anniversary. In her fifty years with the Poor Clare's, she only stepped outside the convent three times for medical appointments. On those rare occasions, she was shocked by the mini skirts and was scared to cross the road because of the traffic. Appeared in The Sunday Mirror, 9th July 1972 with the headline ‘Sister Van Winkle’s Jubilee’.
