A selection of photos of Prams from family albums:
You've seen this one previously but I couldn't resist including it again.
|1936 - My Uncle Don is the boy standing|
|1940 - My Aunt with her toy pram|
|1943 - My Great Aunt (Nhill)|
The advertisement below is from The Argus (Melbourne) newspaper 16th May 1944.
|1946 - Mum|
And finally, the photo below is baby me with my mother and our dog Rex. I have very fond memories of growing up with Rex. He was my best friend for many years. When I started to emulate Rex and cock my leg, Mum decided it was time that I had a brother or sister.
Back to the pram.............It was a gift to my parents from my paternal grandparents. My grandparents gave a pram as a gift upon the arrival of the first child born to each of their children.
I still have the pram but it doesn't look as nice now. I used it for my eldest child but it was too heavy and difficult to maneuver and get in and out of the car so I opted for a newer model when my second child joined us.
|1967 - Mum, Rex & I|
