Old English Prams
Twice I have been at the Royal Library in Copenhagen to scan the old catalogs from different Danish pram firms from the last century. It’s been so interesting to see the many firms competing on making the most beautiful models. I am sure that those who did the original ones must have been frustrated many times as their models were copied. Many times I can’t tell the difference. The English models have been very fashionable from before the WWII and for a long time after. I found two catalogues among the many Danish firms from the British firm Pedigree. The first is from 1934-35 and the last is from 1967.
They have been sold in Denmark as the catalog is in Danish. We had many firms ourselves so those who bought a pram from overseas must have been able to afford it.
I found a link for information of the firm “Lines Bros” that made very popular toys, and bicycles as well as prams.
If any of you share my passion for old prams I would like to hear from you and knowledge on the different firms is highly appreciated.
