It is so enjoyable to get a peek into the past by looking at old photos.  Not only is it entertaining, but old photos assist us historically by helping us to document different types of dolls during different eras.  From time to time in my "doll hunting" I run across a photo of a child posing with a favorite doll.  I can't help wondering about the little child.  Was this her favorite doll? Did she keep her doll for many years?   In addition, several of my site visitors have shown me photos of themselves as children holding their childhood dolls, many of whom they have forgotten their names or whereabouts.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I thought that it would be fun to display these photos for all of us to enjoy. Thus, these pages were created to share photos of ourselves with our favorite dolls of the past.

Over time I added more and more photos to this page, thus, it started getting really slow at loading.   So, I've split up the photos and created an album.  I add photos as I get them so there is no chronological order.   Scroll down, then click on other page links to view all the photos.  Have Fun!

This is just the sweetest little girl (penciled on frame, Janice 1-1/2 years) with what looks to me to be an Effanbee Dy-Dee baby or an early American Character Tiny Tears.  There was no date on this photo but I figure it is from some time in the 40s or early 50s.

What a proud young lady this was to have such a beautiful baby doll.  From the girl's outfit, I'd guess this is from the 20s.  Look at the wonderful expression on this doll.  Not sure of the exact maker of the doll but she looks to be like an Effanbee Lovems, or American Character Tottletot, both very popular during the late 20s, early 30s.

Here is web-friend Jeanette, reading with  her favorite companion, 22" Vogue Brikette, in 1959.

This is a very early photo of a site visitor's mother with her lovely doll.  Unfortunately I've lost her name.  She had asked me if I could identify the doll from the photo.  Sadly, the picture is not clear enough to make out the details of the doll's face.  I would date this in the early 1900s.  Take a look at that hair bow!

This is my daughter, Natalie with her Dream Dancer ballerina doll.  A Christmas gift in 1984.  Pushing the buttons on the stage would control the movement of the doll.  She would gracefully dance and spin.

A precious shot of a sweet little girl (quite a little doll herself), holding her 1955-56 Ginny.  This is a molded lash straight leg walker wearing a well documented outfit #40 Tiny Miss.  I wonder if this little girl still has her original Ginny doll?

Found this unmarked vintage photograph in an antique mall.  Not sure of date but early 1900s due to the great button shoes that the girls are wearing.  These sweet sisters proudly hold their favorite items.  The older girl probably was very studious and perhaps an avid reader.  The younger one, holds a composition baby doll, most likely in its original clothes.  I'm glad they have become part of "my family" now!

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.
