This is the first time I have seen a paper doll and pattern from Child Life magazine featuring a boy. Billy Boy is really only three years old, but for all that quite a little man.
I did not realize this was a boy doll until I started to read the words at the bottom of the page. This magazine was published August 1923. Back then boys wore ruffles and frills just like the girls. Although pattern #4345 does look very boyish.
I think I will color Billy Boy and Little Polly Flinders (posted a while back) then frame them with black cardboard mounting frames and hang them on the wall. Cant decide if it will be side by side, or one somewhat higher than the other. Will have to wait until I am ready to hang them and then see which I like better.
