I saw these dolls at a souvenir shop near the Northern Pier at Blackpool. I thought this too could be something like ‘mind the gap.’ But when I searched the internet for ‘I got soaked dolls, Blackpool’ I found almost nothing. I thought of buying one doll for Chhavi but the face of the doll was quite hard and she is quite capable of hurling her dolls around. So that made me drop the idea.
Given Blackpool’s reputation in certain circles I am wondering if this soaking is about rain or beer? I wonder if anyone reading this post knows more.
