If you are really still, really really still you can hear the jingle of bells, telling us that Santa was here. Each of the girls had written Santa asking for a doll with golden blonde hair, and Santa didn’t disappoint. Here are Joanne and Rosemary under the tree with their very own Mary Hoyers. The dolls were dressed in hand-knitted ice skating outfits, fashioned after those designed by Mary Hoyer. Joanne and Rosemary had seen the dolls on the boardwalk that summer, and longed for a doll of their own. And much to their wondrous eyes that Christmas morning it was all captured by their mother on a Kodak camera. Among the other treasures were dolls with hand crocheted outfits made by a favorite neighbor, and a pixie doll just for little Joanne. Joanne also got a Park and Shop game, which she played endlessly. Rosemary got a Motorola portable radio that she could listen to, and got her first taste of rock and roll. Click to play the music.
