I've been going through some scanned slides from the 1950's. I decided today to share some of the slides that had our childhood dolls in them. I wish some of them had my Ginny dolls, but there doesn't seem to be any slides with Ginny. It's strange since that's the doll I remember playing with the most.
I always liked these large baby dolls. I was convinced that people probably thought I was carrying a real baby. L-R: Me, I think the girl was named Libby, my sister, and our second cousin Christine Volz.
This picture was taken in our backyard. My sister and I are with our aunt. Again, we have our large baby dolls.
I guess my sister and I were going someplace and posed for a picture first. We're holding our Toni dolls.
Here we are in the living room holding our Toni dolls and some kind of baby doll. Since we're wearing the same outfits as in the previous picture I'm assuming it was taken at the same time.
This was taken at Christmas time in our living room. That's me with my aunt and the T. Cohn Superior Toys tin kitchen we received that Christmas. I was recently able to find one eBay. Actually, I now realize the one I found on eBay isn't exactly the same. The eBay one has some yellow painted on the kitchen floor and this one doesn't. I couldn't tell in the old black and white photos, but the colored slide cleared that up for me.
This is our T. Cohn lithographed Spanish style tin dollhouse. (How I'd love to have this again!) I have no idea who the girl on the left is, but that's me and my sister on the right with our cat Lucky. This is our backyard.
