But I won't and here's why: I have an enormous (ridiculously so) collection of 19th Century-themed dolls to share and I created this space to do so. What's the point of collecting anything if you can't show it off, right? Secondly, I am working on dolls and will hopefully start posting them. I know that if I can just get the momentum going, it'll all work out great. I just keep getting pulled in too many directions.
So I'm recommitting myself this weekend and will hopefully be back on track tomorrow with Fashion Plate Friday. For today, above is a 19th Century fire engine (one of my peculiar loves). I don't own this one, but came across it while browsing on eBay (naughty me). The asking price was outlandish, but it's pretty enough to share here. No idea the source or date of the postcard. Probably early 20th century, but the engine itself is definitely a Victorian-era model. Click on the image to srr it in slightly better detail.
