But when we had an electrician working in our loft earlier in the week others saw the light.
Originally this doll had a bottle which when filled with water resulted in the doll wetting herself. No bottle now and you can't see that she has lost her knickers. She is still the proud owner of a carry cot equiped with a pillow and blanket to keep her warm, and with a cover and hood to keep her dry.
She had a companion in the loft whom I thought had gone to a charity shop some time ago. So let me introduce, from the same era:

Teddy has been all round the world and now resides with Paddington in the USA. He still looks good to this day.
Meanwhile his larger brother Herbert has had his share of love.

But Herbert wants to know when his turn will come to leave our loft and wend his way to the USA.
For tales of other dolls you now need to switch to Sepia-Saturday 109.
