Posing with skeletons

I got this photograph from familiar flea-market seller, she didn't like this at all, but knew that it's quite unusual.

 

I believe this dates about 1920s. Or could it be earlier? Who are these men posing with skeletons? Are they doctors, medical students, janitors?? Why are they wearing boots? At least I know that this photo was taken in Finland, because map behind is in Finnish.
