Little Louise's Friends-Rastus

This single paper doll sheet features a black child holding a large sunflower.  He has 4 outfits. To some this paper doll may be considered offensive, but I love the artwork.  It's of the times, this was published around 1909.  I looked up the boys name Rastus, which is pretty much a term for "happy black man" character.

  1. Ditto! 1909 or not, all I see is a happy child. Political correctness should not strangle artfulness or the stories of our history.
