U.S. School Clothes: South Kortright High School, 1927


Figure 1.--Here we have a photograph of a small highschool, we believe in upstate New York. Now when high schools often have 1,000-2,000 students it is hard to imagine a scgool with only about 40 students. This could be one class, but we suspect that it is the enire school.

There does not seem to be much of a mix in the age of the girls, but there does of the boys. The boys are wearing a variety of garments. Somne boys are dressed cassually in open neck shirts while others wear suits. The school does not appear to have a struict dress code, if any at all. Its a bit hard to tell what the boys are wearing as many are in the back row, but several are wearing knickers. The boys look to be wearing both long stockings and knickers.
