Frozen Charlottes

We were watching a show last night... well, not so much watching as it was just playing in the background while we picked a new show to watch off the DVR. Something caught my ear, so we backed up to watch.

It was a show about ships they had found in San Francisco while they were digging a foundation for a new building. Apparently sometime in the past the city had sunk old worn out ships and buried them to add new land mass because the city was growing so large.

Several of the ships they found still had some items inside them. One of them contained some dolls called Frozen Charlottes.

I did some research because I had never heard of them before. Apparently they were THE dolls to have in the mid 19th century. All this time and I never knew!
