• Short Summary

    Charity exhibition of dolls through the ages at Park Lane in London.

  • Description

    Park Lane, London.

    Various shots taken at a charity exhibition of dolls through the ages to aid the Greater London Fund For The Blind. Women and small girls walk around looking at dolls and automatons (one turns round in circles, the other plays a banjos and sticks its tongue out).

    Mrs Odette Churchill shows the dolls she made to a little girl (Clarissa Spencer Churchill?). More historical dolls; a christening group from 1834 and a wooden doll from 2,000 BC. Witch doll head with broom. Chelsea Pensioner doll made by Chelsea Pensioners for Anna Neagle. Modern doll, looks like fashion miniature model of Virginia Woodford (House of Lachasse).
