Happy Birthday, Miss Fanny! A 19th-Century Toy Story

New Brunswick Museum

For her daughter Fanny's eighth birthday, Emma Jack transforms an ordinary doll into Lady Blanche Paulet, the fictional niece of a British officer who has stayed with them a couple of weeks earlier. Lady Blanche's wardrobe exemplifies with striking clarity the fashions and customs of a segment of New Brunswick in the early 1860s.
