Irish Annie

This is Irish Annie, the third doll in the Industrial Emergence Series. The three dolls are supposed to represent different aspects of the fashion of the industrial revolution period of the 1850s in America. Annie came here to escape the Potato Famine in Ireland that began in 1847. She got a job working as a maid in a posh N.Y. hotel and is a little bewildered by the big city.
