Manager's office - birds-eye view
The manager, Alec Sargent, and his secretary, Mona Conway, are from the earliest range of Lundby parents dolls, c1974 - 78. Their clothes are very much mid-70s style. Many of the dolls in this project are dressed inappropriately for 1965. One of the huge tasks I have still to undertake is to re-dress them all!

He is "Elvis" in a suit! Officially known as Robert, he appears in the Lundby catalogue from 1975 as 1133. (I've tried to add the URL to the Old Lundby Catalogues web page but the system won't let me). A previous owner had removed the black paint from his moulded hair - it makes him look very different!

Julie, I have Mona and have always thought that her husband was 'Elvis', with black hair. Haven`t seen this chap before - ?

I don't think you WILL ever finnish it, Julie. The task is HUGE, it will see us all out!

I think it's likely to take another couple of years. I'm undaunted but, for the dolls' clothes, I have to learn to sew properly, first! LOL! I'm not a natural at it and I have very little experience. Despite both my grandmother and great-grandmother working in clothing factories for decades, I don't seem to have inherited their skill. My mother hated sewing, so I never really got to grips with it, beyond household mending and some dolls house bedding. (She did knit, though, and taught me. I've done loads of knitting over the years). Once I've done a few prototypes, I'll have to get a production line going on dressing the dolls!

He he, so many of these photos have given me a big wide smile and this is one of them! Everything they could need, wonderful detail.
You will finish, it's amazing how much you can get done with these little words if you just make your mind up and get down to it.
