Show & Tell Friday – Dr. G’s Pram   22 comments

For Show & Tell Friday, I would like to share my father-in-law’s pram from the 1930’s.  My mother-in-law took it apart, cleaned it up and put it all back together again.  She has some great antiques with lots of family history.  She has a knack for restoring items and I will have to get more pictures of some of her pieces.

Yes, that is a picture of Dr. G as a little guy!  (Too Cute!) The pram was first used for his older sister and then for Dr. G.  I love that they still have it and boy is it in great condition!

  1. A truly beautiful pram ~ how wonderful that it has stayed in the family and I am sure will continue to do so for many more years. It is in beautiful condition. Your mother-in-law has great skills.

    For me it brought to mind a little story my mother loved to tell and that was when she was a very new mum she was dragging her pram (very similar to this one) up the front steps of her mothers home.Well I was the new baby, her first only to have me slip out the front of the pram and onto the ground the wicker top had just openned and let me slide out back, lucky out came the pram bedding with me so I landed on top of it all. She has never forgiven herself even today! lol lol!

    I thank you for your show and tell and for jogging a memory of mine.
