Christmas in the 1940's and 50's

My mother arranged for a professional photographer to come to our home every year at Christmas time for the annual Christmas photo. Since my sister's birthday was on the 23rd, and mine was on the 29th, we also have some birthday photos.

I'm really grateful that these nostalgic photos exist. I especially enjoy looking at all the dolls we received over the years. Some of them are now considered collectables. How I wish I still had them. They're all gone...except for my beloved Ginny doll! She survived the years with a hair cut and a broken leg. I'd love help in identifying the rest of the dolls pictured. If you can help please E-mail me at
