vintage childrens hankie The Dionne Quintuplets

Wonderful red children’s hankie with the pictures of Marie, Emilie, Cecile, Annette and Yvonne Dionne…The Dionne quintuplets were born during the depression on May 28, 1934. They are the worlds first known surviving quintuplets. I asked Jeeves about their history, and boy is it sad. The Canadian government took the babies away from their parents and built a hospital to take care of them and to study them. The parents finally won them back at age 9 in a law suit.
