Paper Dolls, the Bronx

Waiting for those returns to come in? Tense? These girls have the right idea: Relax and play a little.

A friend identified the dolls as part of the Boarding School set.

Photo by Ida Wyman c. 1948. Image from The Old Print Shop web site; the actual store has been in Manhattan for over 100 years.


  1. I love this photo. It's full of hopes and dreams. Thanks for posting it.

  2. This is just the most wonderful photograph. It just makes me smile and the composition of the shadows in the monochrome film are fantastic.
