THANKS FOR STOPPING BY MY AUCTION ! For those of you who would enjoy a little history regarding these adorable little girl's/boy's VINTAGE children's prints:

These Frances Hook's (artist from Flourtown Pennsylvania ) "American Beauties", and "All American Boys", (girls/boys-children's prints), began to appear in Northern Tissue advertisements on March 23, 1959 . The first rolls of tissue featuring these darling little girls were shipped from the Northern Tissue mill, and the American Beauties, the brand's first "Northern Tissue Girls," sent Northern tissue sales sky-rocketing!! WHAT AN ADVERTISING BREAKTHROUGH FOR NORTHERN TISSUE/TOWELS COMPANY! Since the company did so well with their unique little girl's prints, Frances Hook was then commissioned to create simiiar drawings to depict paintings of little boys to display on their paper towels advertisements, as well. Subsequently, the "All American Boys" were introduced on Northern Towels, and offers for prints of the darling little girls and boys, broke records with 30-plus, millions of sets of these prints being sold by 1966. These 8 prints measure approximately 10-1/4" x 13-1/2" in size, and a 9 th print is 5"x 7" in size.
