Title

"Winnie" - china doll

Description

This was the treasured doll of Mary Agnes Campbell Templeton (later Murray) 1909-2003. Mary lived at Moorbrock and was given the doll by her cousin Agnes's (Agnes Smith later Adamson) best friend Winnie Biggar from Dumfries. Mary named the doll 'Winnie'.

Winnie was exceptionally well looked after and when Mary was in her nineties, Winnie was still 'tae the fore' resting beautifully in Mary's 'good' drawer, together with a 'Sunday' tablecloth, a Bible, a long horn ladle, and various white crocheted items.
