I have no information about this adorable little girl. No name is written on the folder. The only information is the name of the photo studio, Austin Studios, which, from what I've been able to glean, was in Los Angeles. This was in one of the boxes Bert gave me the other day. You can't imagine what I've been looking through for the past few days. I'm a very happy collector.

As soon as I saw this photo I was reminded of Baby Snooks, a character created and played by the late Fanny Brice. I think it's because of the dress.
The Baby Snooks Show was an American radio program starring comedienne and Ziegfeld Follies alumna Fanny Brice as a mischievous young girl who was 40 years younger than the actress who played her when she first went on the air. The series began on CBS September 17, 1944, airing on Sunday evenings at 6:30pm as Post Toasties Time (for sponsor General Foods). The title soon changed to The Baby Snooks Show, and the series was sometimes called Baby Snooks and Daddy. (SOURCE: Wikiepdia)
There was even a Baby Snooks paperdoll. If you find one expect to pay $100 or more. I can only wish I had one in my collection
