It is so enjoyable to get a peek into the past by looking at old photos.
CHILDHOOD DOLL PHOTOS - PAGE SIXTEEN
| ||An antique store find. This sweet little girl sits attentively in frills and lace while clutching her favorite "mama" doll. This professional photo is most likely from the mid to later 1920s. It was taken in Kansas City, Mo.|
Sorry this isn't clearer but its the best I can do. This snapshot was taken on Christmas morning, 1969. This little girl is proudly showing off her brand new Ideal Crissy "growing hair" doll. (Looks like Crissy is waving at us.) This was the orange lace mini dress that this doll was first issued in. The Crissy family of dolls became very popular in the 70s.

|Love this photo of these sweet children sitting in their old wagon on a dirt road. There was writing on the bottom of the photo but it has worn with time and is no longer legible. Probably had the names and date. Might be from the early 1910s.|

No information on this photo but the doll is clearly Ideal's Bonnie Braids Baby, with her distinct pigtails. She helps to date this photo from 1951-53 as that is when this doll was marketed.

I loved this photo when I saw it online and it is even more beautiful in hand. I think the artistic composition of the pose is exceptionally stunning. This professional photograph was taken in Argentina most likely in the late 1800s or early 1900s. My best guess is that these are two rather sad looking, but beautiful sisters each holding their favorite things. The lovely bisque dolly must have been a wonderful treasure as she is quite lovingly displayed.
The more I acquire these old photos, the more I often see a real resemblance between the mommy and the dolly. Here is sweet, though somewhat sad, Betty sitting on the lawn with her sweet, though also somewhat sad looking, baby doll. Photo is dated 1928. Doll may be an Effanbee baby as this company was popular during this time. Great old Ford in the background.

Here is a little girl standing in what appears to be a garden (too bad it is not in color) in 1957. She appears to be holding a Virga or Fortune Ginny-type 8" doll, or maybe a Ginger. Most likely the doll has bendable knees. I don't believe this is actually a Ginny as the hair seems a bit puffy. Wonder if she carried the doll around in the little basket?

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.
