This had to have been a pretty difficult photograph to get, especially if you thik the plane above him was also flying sideways.


From a 1961 US Navy Far East Cruise Book who were pretty casual with their captioning.

Poupette print, 18"x24"
$45 in our shop


Big photo print of a the doll we found, made in France in the 1960's. After we started taking photos it was clear that we should offer the photo, enlarged to larger than life size in all her purple raffia hair splendor. Perfect for a little girl's room. It reminds of of the posters we used to have as kids- the actual photos of Sesame Street characters, or teddy bears, which you don't really see at all anymore. And of course it's not just for girls- this one is in our 3 year old son's room.
Measures 18" x 24", Printed with Epson archival inks on Epson heavyweight matte archival paper.
