Bill Boley's Dummy Den

After the listing on the blog of the pictures of a young Bill Boley i was asked if I had any pictures of Bill’s Dummy Den. I had to go and search through all my old mail but I knew that Charlene Boley had sent me a couple pictures of the Dummy Den and I did in fact find them.


These are after Charlene had already started to liquidate Bill’s collection. I own some of these figures today and they are part of the permanent Ventriloquist Central Collection.
