Prams In The Garden

 

A pictorial history of the British perambulator

 

We are very proud that Jan and Geoff Swift have asked us to distribute their latest master piece on our eBay shop and web site.

----------

Jan and Geoff Swift have been collecting, researching and restoring perambulators for twenty years.

A surprise gift of a vintage doll's pram sparked an interest which has resulted in a private museum containing two hundred and twenty carriages, ranging in age from 1780 to 2015, plus a large archive of contemporary photographs, advertisements and catalogues.

This latest book is divided into four major periods of pram development and page by page looks at the style of perambulators at a point in time and the manufacturers producing them, set in historical context.  Doll's prams are dealt with alongside their child's size counterparts.

With over 300 hundred photos of prams from the authors collection plus 65 period photos and 300 advert/catalogue images, 'Prams in the Garden' should be of interest to anyone who seeks to learn more about this important aspect of our social history.
