1964 – Crossing Guard Paper Doll

Mid-century make-believe.

I couldn’t resist one more Betsy McCall paper doll post. Previously this month, I posted a Betsy McCall doll on her first day of school and a Betsy McCall paper doll on her first day of school. Here is one more. This time she is an older, more responsible paper doll. Her important job? A crossing guard.

The page included a little story about how the pre-teen got the prestigious gig.

And here she is with her little cousin.

The Betsy McCall feature was a popular page in McCalls magazines in the mid-century. The feature began in 1951 and lasted until the 1990’s.
