Produced for Atlas Obscura: http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/inside-the-185yearold-portuguese-hospital-for-dolls "The Praça da Figueira or" Square of the Fig Tree" in Lisbon, Portugal is a bustling place filled with shops, hotels, and cafes. But tucked near one of its corners is a very special shop that is easy to miss: Hospital de Bonecas, also known as the Dolls Hospital.Established in 1830, the Hospital de Bonecas has been fixing broken, dirty, and disheveled dolls for 185 years. It's far from the only hospital of its kind—there are hundreds of doll hospitals around the world—but it's definitely one of the oldest."
