Historiann correspondant Indyanna brought his dolls over to play the other day, and sent this photo in homage to (one of) his hometown team’s victory in the NLCS and their appearance in the World Series this year for the first time in fifteen years. (My vintage Barbies didn’t quite know what to make of these relatively tiny men!) It’s actually a fair approximation of Indyanna’s eclectic interests: “John Adams” (say it with me: President Second-Worst!) is on the left, glaring at Mary Wollstonecraft in the background behind his collection of Pirates and Phillies bobbleheads and miscellaneous baseball dolls action figures. I don’t follow baseball too closely, but I glanced at the sports section of the newspaper this morning and I have only one question: what’s with the dumb haircuts, Phillies? Some of them look like they were scalped by an angry, drunken Marine barber.
Longtime readers may remember Indyanna’s other photographic contributions to the doll blogging around here from last spring, the window box Barbies planted cheerfully in front of a Center City rowhouse. Thanks for remembering us at Historiann HQ, Indyanna!
