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.
