Title
 
Snow White Rag Doll
Description
 
This doll was sent to Frances Coxall of Thornton Heath by her mother as a "sorry you're homesick" present. Frances had been evacuated to Crichel, Dorset during the Second World War. Just before she went away, she had seen the film 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. It was the first film she ever saw because her father, a strict Christadelphian, didn't approve of cinema. Frances had other dolls, but somehow this one was closest to her.
