LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 11.18 41 During the demolition of the Beecher Terrace public-housing complex, an archeological dig is unearthing the Russell neighborhood's rich, diverse past. By Anne Marshall Photos by Joon Kim Above: The Russell neighborhood in 1939, just before Beecher Terrace construction began. Opposite page: A piece of a porcelain doll called a Frozen Charlotte, dating from the mid-to- late 1800s. The Frozen Charlotte and Frozen Charlie dolls, about two inches long, were popular as cake toppers, gifts and toys. The arms and legs are fused together and cannot move. The dolls are believed to represent a Seba Smith poem about a young woman who refuses to wear a coat and freezes to death on a sleigh ride to a New Year's Eve ball.
