Hand me downs: 1904

Every little girl has a corner in her heart set apart for paper dolls.... ...the plain, ordinary, old-fashioned paper doll which she can cut out for herself from magazines and fashion books.
--From Harper's Bazaar--

Lots of images in old magazines were made with little girls in mind, who would spend hours cutting out pictures of people and furniture, to play with.

I like how the culture flowed, it would be used by parents first, then given to children when cast off.
