The Civic Museum of Regina and the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame are partnering to celebrate Women's History Month this October through a variety of exciting initiatives that will engage the community with Saskatchewan Women in Sports.
We hope to turn the entire city into a museum for the month of October by creating pop-up displays in different locations around town. Our professional curatorial staff will work with businesses and community groups to curate existing spaces in a way that highlights Saskatchewan's incredible sportswomen and showcases different organizations' own connection to the sports community. Spaces can be non-traditional, but should be open to the public for some portion of the day. Visitors will be able to find and visit these museum sites through a special guide provided by the Civic Museum of Regina and Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
If you are interested in being a part of this program please email Gillian Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Polly in yellow dress
This beautiful doll is made of fine china, with brown hair, a yellow bonnet, and eyes that could open and close. Her yellow organdy dress is adorned with a black velvet ribbon decorated with pink flowers. White stockings and black boots complete her outfit.
This toy doll was donated to the museum in 1982 by Charles Morton.
The popularity of elaborate fashion dolls such as Polly necessitated a need for experts to repair them. Beginning in the 1830’s several “doll hospitals” opened across Europe. These employed specialists who could fix the beloved toys.
