Evelyn Stewart of Kingston, New Jersey, is shown above with one of her favorite toys – a baby doll. Her mother, Maude, wrote on the back, “My dear little Evelyn.” The photo was taken in the early 1920s.
This next picture may have been taken when Evelyn first received the doll. Evelyn’s father, Benjamin Stewart, looks very dressed up for the beach, so maybe the family went to Atlantic City for a convention. He was one of the founding members of the Kingston Fire Department. He’s wearing a lapel pin, but I can’t tell what it represents.
I always enjoy seeing cherished toys in family photographs. Do you remember your favorite toy? I remember how real my dolls and stuffed animals felt to me as a child.
