Thank you for sharing this lovely photo
Did you know that at one time each nursing school awarded its own distinctive cap to the nurses it graduated?  That cap was a prized possession and part of the nurse's identity.  My aunt used to be able to tell which school another nurse trained at just by looking at her cap.
Wow i didn't know that.  Very cool.

C'est Bon Magnifique
What a wonderful picture!
