just a note

I forgot to mention! I have a second job now! So I'm super busy!  Not sure what my schedule will be like or when I'll have time to post things.  Lately it's been mostly magazines and newspapers because that's what I currently have scanned into my computer.  I want to scan more sets but just haven't found time.  Hopefully in the summer when school is out I'll have more time to commit to it.  But I also have to prepare for the Convention in Seattle in July.  I'll do my best to keep up with the blog but school work comes first!  Thanks to all my readers! 

Brenda Starr Reporter

Here is a comic sheet of Brenda Starr Reporter (this is a copy, which is why it has a yellow tint to it).  It is dated 1948 and is from the Chicago Tribune.  The comic is by Dale Messick.  The doll is on the bottom sideways, so I posted her upright for a better view.  She has 2 outfits and two hats.  I'm sad that the lovely dress in the comic panel isn't included with the doll.

Tillie the Toiler

These two Tillie the Toiler comic paper dolls have the same pose.  The first one is "Ho for the Beach" I'm sure the world is used in a different way then what we think of today!  This one has an outfit, hat and umbrella.  It is dated 6-26-1932.  The second one features a dress for a garden party which as a matching hat. This one is dated 6-19-1932.  Both dolls are by Russ Westover.

Roy Gordon

This Muny Opera Dressograph features Roy Gordon along with 3 fabulous costumes from various operas.  I believe Roy Gordon also did some acting later in life, which is where I recognize him from. The date on here is hard to read but I think it is 7-21-35.
