Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete illustrated history of the British wheeled baby carrier, from the eighteenth century to the end of the classic pram era, this book is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and an invaluable resource for any owner or collector of historic prams. Examining and illustrating the design and development of full-size prams, this book details the technological changes that affected pram design, and the rise in popularity of the pram.

In an intriguing final section, the author goes on to examine the designs of children's toy prams, which were perfect miniature versions of the full-sized prams. These miniature prams kept pace with the design changes of the full-sized prams, and this section will be especially interesting for toy collectors.

Table of Contents

Jan and Geoff Swift have a comprehensive private collection of perambulators dating from before the Victorian era to the present day. The collection includes many of the iconic and significant carriages in the history of perambulators. Their knowledge of prams and the industry that manufactured them has been built up over many years through meticulous research and contact with the prams themselves, often through careful restoration.
