    Manikin

    This postcard is hard to explain why these men had a photo taken with the dolls . They appears to be 1940's Carnival dolls. A recent post of one of these dolls made me remember this postcard I have . If I dated this card right it should be AZO (2 triangles up, 2 triangles down) 1918 - 1930 so perhaps earlier than 40's .

      Well,....before the "Blow Up Girlfriend Doll".
      They seem to be cuddling some cute "flappers" . Odd photo alright!

    10. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Very strange.......but would be interesting to know the story behind it!!!
    11. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 4 years ago
      Looks like they wanted to be photographed and decided to pick the oddest accessories which would make the picture stand out. They succeeded very well !~
    12. TheGateKeeper TheGateKeeper, 4 years ago
      I remember these were called "Cupie Dolls" that were prizes on the midway at fairs.
    13. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Yes gatekeeper your right ! I wonder if these guys won all 3 and wanted to show off :-)
    14. Rick55 Rick55, 4 years ago

      Door to Door traveling doll salesmen. leaving a photo at every door and a business card. ( or store to store sales promotion force. ) Times were hard back when and people took any job they could. One thing tho--The dolls are really cute little "flappers". Man knocks at my door with a sales pitch----I'd buy one!
    23. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 4 years ago
      This is off topic but I saw an add in a local paper yesterday for a full size "readhead" manikin. Of course I thought of you. There wasn't a picture but there was a phone number. Not because of the readhead..just the manikin part. :)
    24. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Onegoodfind I am a redhead :-) That was kind to think of me when you saw it for sale . I only collect miniature mannequins /manikins under 30 inches . But I sure thank you for dropping me a note . Always a pleasure
      to see you !
    25. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Hi inky ! so nice to see you . I think of you often and how your garden must be gorgeous . We have a new bug here a Japanese beetle and it is eating all my flowers and nothing stops them :-( Darn bugs transported on ships and set up housekeeping in wrong countries . Not much they don't attack . But they don't bite people . send photo's when you can ok xoxo
    26. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 4 years ago
      Jap Beetles so plentiful in my neighborhood--BUT I have many outside militant cats. So they are run off. Adopt a couple cats of any age and sex.
    27. fleafinder fleafinder, 4 years ago
      haha dont!you never know japanese beetles might be antiques!around for more than decades ago!
    28. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Postcardcollector I am allergic to cats but I have a yard full of rabbits that eat what the Japanese beetles don't :-( I am going to find Yosemite Sam lol
    29. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 4 years ago
      They have their season --so don't count on the forever factor--You are not bound in this awful experience--only passing thru!
    30. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Postcard we have a very short growing season here everyday counts :-)
    31. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 4 years ago
      Cats will work for you short or long seasons--They think they are "toys" Fling them high and catch them.
    32. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Many thanks Trey and betweenthelens I appreciate you stopping :-)
    33. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      Wee look at that! Do you suppose maybe the makers of the dolls? That's really cool and the fact that you ended up with them is so perfect!
    34. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago

      Love this!!! Looks more like mid twenties to me. Also the doll on the left looks like the one I posted awhile back. Funny, she was stored in an old shoe box that have a picture of the shoes like the ones the guy on the left is wearing...
    41. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      Oh yes vintagelamp I remember your look a like doll you posted and it is funny she was in a shoebox like his shoes :-) So nice to have you stop and now I need to go back and look at your doll ! Many thanks
    42. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 1 year ago
      i think the reverse side is where they were supposed to write the ransom letter. great and interesting card Mani!
    43. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
      Thank you ho2cultcha :-) I found it a bit bizarre . Why would these 2 men pose with dolls from carnival . Just odd . I guess they look like gangsters and holding some kids prize for ransom lol
