The Scissors Bird Paper Dolls, ca. 1943

This is by Stephens Publishing, with no date listed, and none found in my Mary Young reference books. I'm guessing 1943, based on the fashions as well as the pulpy, foxed paper inside. WWII rationing of paper and fabric would still be in effect. Clothes are simple, daytime hemlines hovering around the knee.
