Thursday Tab- Lowe #1514 Ruth, Joan and Winnie

As far as I can tell, this little girl set was published by Lowe in 1957 (books with numbers right around this one were published that year). Otherwise, I don't know anything about it except that it's adorable.
My book is likely a reprint, given the 15 cent cover price.
My friend Peggy confirms that my book is a reprint. The original set was calle Three Little Maids From School (someone at Lowe was a Gilbert and Sullivan fan, I guess), and it was published in 1957 with the number #2404.
Also- I just noticed that Joan's jammies were printed on 2 pages. Winnie has footie jammies, but poor Ruth doesn't have any (likely there were some in the original- and probably more pages of clothes for all of the dolls).

I loved paper dolls as a kid. These just bring back so many memories.
