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

CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE THIRTEEN

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

The apple of any little mother's eye, this darling Ideal Thumbelina sits upon "her mommy" Victoria's lap, in 1964.

Beautiful Stella Kate poses with her dolly in a pretty buggy.  This is a professional portrait photo from the United Kingdom in 1914.  Site visitor, Elaine shares this lovely photo of her grandmother.

Elaine, granddaughter of Stella Kate above, poses with a favorite "walky-talky" dolly of her own back in 1961.  She still has this doll today, but there are no manufacturer's markings to identify her.  She  believes she may be from Ideal or Palitoy.  Elaine is also from the UK so most likely this doll was not marketed here in the USA.

This picture of Debbie with her favorite childhood doll was originally posted on my mystery page.  Fortunately with a little detective work, and a twist of fate, I was lucky enough to be able to identify her.  Debbie is holding a cloth rag doll named "Daisy" made by the M & S Doll Co. from 1961.

A sweet little girl with two of her best friends.  Her tiny kitten and her 36" companion doll.  I found this photo in a pile of loose photos at an antique road show.  Photo is unmarked but was most likely taken in the early 60s and doll appears to be originally dressed. The doll is a Patty Playpal look-a-like and may have been a walker.

A very, VERY old studio portrait of a little girl dressed like "The Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe"....surrounded by all of her children.  I've seen a few different versions of this set up so it must have been a popular "gimmick".   All of the dolls are china heads in various sizes.  Picture is from the 1800s.

This is Ann Frank (yes, THEE Ann Frank) posing on the far right, with her dolly and a few friends on a street in Amsterdam in the 1930s, a few years prior to her family having to go into hiding.  My daughter, who is a school teacher, found this photograph as she was researching information on Ann Frank for a lesson plan she was preparing for her middle-school classroom.  Knowing my love of dolls, she wanted to share this with me, and I, would like to share it with you all, too!

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.
