The Kewpie look

Yes, auntjess, if the babygirl had enough hair to updo into a Kewpie curl, that what we see in those 50's baby pix. Linda's just shy of enough hair for that curl and is beamingly OK with it.

Gerber Baby?

She looks a lot like the Gerber baby, doesn't she? Really cute picture.

What a sweetie!

She's adorable. Keep the Linda pics coming! Love seeing late 40's/early 50's family life in Kodachrome!

Miss Linda

Happy Linda.

Queen Bee

We are amused.

Hair Today

One can go to the Mall today and see teens with hair just like this except theirs is purple, orange, green, pink.

Sweet jacket

Babies don't have that sense of style these days.

The "do" of the day

That's how little girls' hair was done back then. I have pictures of me and of my sisters that way. For dressy occasions, a bow might be tied around the topknot, of pinned in with a bobby pin.
