In this article, we analyse schoolchildren's clothing at the village school of Rautiosaari in northern Finland between 1909 and 1939. Accordingly, we describe the kind of clothes that schoolgirls and schoolboys used during the target period. Interviews with elderly people were used as sources for the study. The research had a micro-historical approach. The starting point was a group interview with 10 people supplemented by several individual interviews. In addition to interviews, the data included observations of existent relevant environments and historical documents such as photographs, official archive records, magazines and newspapers, local history publications, and other literature. Clothes and schoolchildren as their users create a lively educational discourse covering the chronological continuity in the flow of history which the researchers interpret.
