The inspiration for today’s Sepia Saturday post comes from a photo of a lady in traditional costume posing with a baby in a vintage pram.
Here’s me in my “now vintage” pram – cool wheels in March 1965. This is one of my favourite photos of my Mum :-)
This pram is probably responsible for my interest in sports cars. Note the piece of string hanging over the edge. Teddy was tied to it for easy retrieval when I launched him over the side. My pram even had a fancy canopy to keep the sun off – back in the days when you could wheel your baby outdoors and leave it.
Inevitably, you sometimes have to share your wheels -
but I seem quite happy sharing the pram with my little brother. Here we are again looking a bit bigger, with our granddad, Douglas, and Teddy. I still have Teddy although he is now a bit bald, cross-eyed and mis-shapen :-)
Now, burn some rubber and go and see what everyone else has been inspired to write.
