1930 BOOTS Paper Dolls

 July 21 & July 22, 1930.  BOOTS strikes her best paper doll pose.  I suggest color coding the outfits on each page.  Color a tab on each outfit to match something on the corresponding BOOTS paper doll, such as the color of her shoes or the flower on her garter.  I tried to scan all the paper dolls in the same but it is impossible (at least for me) to ensure that all the outfits will be interchangeable.
 July 23 & 24, 1930.  BOOTS can play tennis or golf in her sporty outfit and she can go motoring or strolling in either of her dresses.
July 25 & 26, 1930.  BOOTS is ready for any formal or informal event in these lovely outfits.

Anna Belle's Favorite Dolls

September 25, 1926.  "Dear Diary,  I did have the most wonderful time at Dotty Jane's doll party Tuesday.  At first I could not decide which dolls to take, since each one of us was to bring only two, and I have so many!  But finally I decided to bring Marie Claire, because she is my most beautiful child, and my dear old Minerva, because I love her best.  All the dolls behaved so nicely - Dotty Jane said wouldn't it be nice if we always made our mothers as proud of us as we were of them?  They all were good, that is, except for Marie Claire, who upset her tea all over the tablecloth and her nice new dress.  Now I know how mother felt the time I asked for a third helping of ice cream at Mrs. Platts..  I certainly must put mother into my diary, I'll do that next week.  ANNA BELLE"
