U.S. School Clothes: Tisbury School (1919)


Figure 1.--This photograph is a class at Tisbury School on Martha's Vineyard, an island off Cape Cod in Massachusetts. It seems to date from about 1919 or 1920. Some of the boys still wear knee pants with long stockings while others wear knickers (also with long stockings). One boy and only one boy seems to be wearing knee socks and bare knees with his above-the-knee knickers.

One boy and only one boy seems to be wearing knee socks and bare knees with his above-the-knee knickers. The adult clothing looks a bit more modern too. Note the shorter length of the teacher's skirt on the left. A few of the boys wear tiny bow ties with their white shirts. Quite a variety of styles is represented here.
