It is so enjoyable to get a peek into the past by looking at old photos.

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE TEN

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

This beautiful photo is of Annie and her sister Ola, dressed in identical plaid dresses, displaying what appear to be twin bisque dolls as they sit for a family photo in 1904.  

 

 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Tessie and sister Anna, share some quite time with their very large composition mama dolls in 1925.  Though the photo doesn't capture the details of these dolls, they appear to be very well made and nicely dressed.

  

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Marcia may be a bit camera shy, but her dolly she named Mary certainly isn't!  Photo taken in 1944.  Not sure who this baby doll is, but she is very typical of the cloth/compo baby dolls made during the war years.
  

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Here is Sandra with her sister Karen and their "little sister" Penny Play Pal as they pose in the garden in 1960. Sandra still has this doll today.  I appreciate that Sandra was kind enough to share a few of her family photos, this, as well as the three above.

  

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Marilyn and her older sister, Cindy, lovingly cradle their Ideal Baby Big Eyes baby dolls whom they named Judy and Susie after their cousins, in 1956.  Marilyn still has these dolls today.  They are marked Ideal and have oilcloth bodies, vinyl limbs,  with full curly hair.  (Baby Big Eyes were made between 1954-59).

A beautiful sepia-toned photo of an adorable little girl with her 50s doll family.  In her arms is a Horsman Squalling Baby.  A Noma Electric/Effanbee doll sits next to her.  Not sure of the others, but I believe the baby on the couch might be an Effanbee Dy-dee and the other large doll is a pretty typical girl doll of this period.

  

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Stopping play long enough to pose at a tea party are two best friends, with their best friends, in 1951.  Dolls pictured are Madame Alexander dolls.  The best I can tell from this slightly fuzzy picture is the one on the left is Alice In Wonderland (with Maggie face) and the other appears to be a Wendy face, or Margaret face, beautiful Bride doll.

Perhaps you have a treasured photo of yourself, or a loved one, with a childhood doll,  that you would like to include on this page.  It could even be a photo of an unidentified child that you stumbled across in an antique mall, like some that I've included.  What is important is that there be a doll in the shot and it be somewhat vintage.   If you have a CLEAR photo that you would like to add to the page, email me to get instructions on sending it.
