Girls with Dolls



Today's picture shows two girls playing with dolls. These children appear to be very well off, as the dolls are new and fancy, and there is a nice toy truck on the ground as well. The picture was taken around 1920.

  1. The girls are very cute. I really like the setting. Love that bench and all the plants behind them.

  2. My mother gave some scraps of material to her friend who made dolls. In return the friend gave her a doll. It had yarn pigtails& an embroidered face.I wanted that doll so much. Around that time I was going through puberty & I cried at everything. My mom didn't like that I cried, so she said I could have the doll if I didn't cry for week. Well, I didn't & she gave me the doll. I loved that doll & took good care of it. One day I came home from school & went to get my doll, It wasn't there. One of my brothers had taken it outside & rubbed its face in a cow patty. Of course I cried then. My mom said, "If I didn't want the boys to get into my things, I should put a lock on the door. There was nothing I could do, but put the doll into the stove & burn it.
