Image of a doll inscribed "Effie Tunnell's Doll" in period pen, ca. 1860s. With photographer's imprint on reverse for "Wilson's Gallery, West Side Public Square, Greenfield Illinois / Photographing and finishing Pictures, in all the various styles..."
 
Who was Effie Tunnell? Under what circumstances did she commemorate her doll? To what childhood friend was the tintype given? Whose slightly unsteady hand wrote the inscription? In this pretty little image, Effie's favored doll lives on.
