LEGO® Minifigures 50: Ambulance Driver

This is a very old minifigure. She was my first such toy, and - according to my son's copy of the Dorling Kindersley book, "Standing Small: A Celebration of 30 years of the LEGO minifigure", this model was also one of the very first sold. "Standing Small" has her birthdate at 1978 -which would be about right. She came with a small ambulance, which she didn't  actually fit in without some  vehicular modifications.  She's in pretty good nick, all things considered. The white plastic is a little discoloured (l tried to make it a different colour to the white tile background), and her legs are a little floppier than they ought to be.  But she's intact, and she still  has her sticker; LEGO hadn't started printing directly onto the bricks at this stage.
