Aunt Polly A Peace Doll


Aunt Polly a Peace doll from when we were little about 1900 is a black and white paper doll by the artist Helen McCook.  She has 6 outfits and a doll who has one outfit.  I don't have a date on this one and it is a photocopy.  It would be from Doll Castle News magazine, around 1979 or 1980   This page would have been folded in half and stapled in the middle of the magazine.

turnabout dolls

This is a set from 1943 called Turnabout Dolls from Samuel Lowe.  I believe they are reprinted from other sets.  The dolls are double sided and can be flipped (hence turnabout)  I only have three dolls (six if you count both sides) and one is very damaged.  these are very fragile.

Movie Dressograph Shirley Temple

This is the only full size Movie Dressograph sheet I have.  the very famous Shirley Temple.  due to it's size and fragile nature, I cannot scan it, so instead I took pictures with my phone.  am I too lazy to rotate the pictures... yes I am! (also can't really figure out how to on my new phone yet) anyway Shirley has three dresses and a wig along with a bow.  This is dated December 23rd 1934.  maybe one day i'll be able to get a better scan of it.  the paper is separating in the middle where the newspaper has been folded.
