This Saturday I'm sharing these vintage paper dolls. Enlarge, print on card stock and cut out. They could be given to your Halloween guests.
This one is by Grace Drayton (1877-1936) Halloween illustrated paper doll .
Drayton also did the Campbell soup kids.
Paper dolls have existed for more than 300 years and even until now, they are still inexpensive toys every child can play with.
This one below, was found in the trash by Mark Forder. He stumbled across it when it was being thrown out in a dumpster filled with other boxes. He took the box home and placed it in a closet where it remained for 6 months or so. One day he had some free time and he decided to see what was in it, and to him it appeared to be just a bunch of old papers. Not knowing much he started to inquire about the various papers over the internet and he also purchased a book on "Paper Collectibles". Much to his suprise he was finding that many of the papers were important to local historians as well as national societies/museums such as "The Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame", and the "Smithsonian" (for the theatre papers).
