Volunteer medical and support staff outside Northcote Infants School - 1918 Influenza

In Auckland schools were used as temporary hospitals, including Seddon Memorial, Vermont Street and Northcote Infants schools, while the grandstand at Ellerslie racecourse became a children’s convalescent home. This photo shows the volunteer medical and support staff outside Northcote Infants School. The boy scouts collected prescriptions for the patients.
