Lola No. 9



Lola was born and raised in New Orleans. She attended Tulane College where she met and fell in love with a wealthy frat boy. Fred and Lola eventually married and moved into the first and only house they would ever live in at 7717 St. Charles Ave. She loved the Avenue with it's grand old oak trees and the sound of the historic street car. One day while trimming the crepe myrtles Lola came upon a large hornets nest, hundreds of the bugs swarmed her head. She flailed her arms, spinning and jumping about in efforts to keep the dastardly critters off of her. She became disoriented and was hit by that street car she loved so much. Lola is buried in cemetery No. 1 at the corner of Prytania and Washington.

Lola is the 9th doll in this series
