Then, Now, & Forever: The History of the VIA


The Village Improvement society reached out to Topaz looking to document their long, rich, female-empowered history that began in the suburbs of Philadelphia in 1895. We were honored to collaborate on such a meaningful project and explore the history of the oldest, all-female run hospital that was created and organized before women had the right to vote.
