I found a mention that Root Studio at the address you state saying the Studio was the "Official Photographer" for the Thornton Township High School - Class of 1943, so your date works well. It seems that the studio was formed by W. J. Root who began his business, by taking souvenir photographs at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. He is mentioned in various photographic journals from 1892 until 1897.Root Studio was still taking yearbook pictures as late as 1963 - but apparently from a different address (226 S. Wabash Avenue Chicago).
I wish they still did the white dress and cap. Now when they come in your room it could be an aid or the cook.
I'm with Patsy. Nurses today look like they are wearing their PJs.
I love how the photo is framed - very elegant, makes it all the more special.
