A doll maker in the 1920’s. She was an elementary school teacher. She wanted to make her dolls look so real, she cut hair off of her students. She even skinned off some of her daughter’s skin for one particular doll. She was caught and found not guilty for reason of insanity.
Massachusetts State House in Boston after a major snowstorm in 1945. It had not been much earlier that Boston finally banned horse drawn vehicles from Boston's streets (the last horse drawn fire engine was retired in 1938), but they returned to deliver food supplies by sled in 1945. Here a dog team does what it does best.
