Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt is a baby in the pram, and since I can hardly resist cute babies, I have a plethora of options for this post!

“Robert Teel Bowens age 5 mo”

This one features a little girl and her doll in the buggy.

This one is an AZO Real Photo postcard with the arrows pointing upward so can be dated between 1904-1918. The note on the back says “This is Mrs. Stancoffs baby’s picture she is sending you. She is going to Ark. Wed. to stay a month while they plaster their other 3 rooms. She has a girl all the time.”

This one says “Edna and Bennie in Edna baby dress and her baby doll, June 1918.”

  2. The wickerwork prams look so attractive. I don’t suppose they were particularly practical, though.

    Today’s carriages and strollers just don’t have the character that the old ones do.

      There are a few that have the character but they are so expensive only celebrities can afford them!

    “Robert Teel Bowens” “Dovie M Teel” – what magnificent names, even though his pram looks more like a covered wheelchair.

    The last one is also my favourite. I love what they are wearing, the dolls pram and the lovely garden in the background.

    What a wide variety of pram photos you have. Some of the prams look as though they were very heavy (with or without a passenger) – the Mums must have had quite a workout going uphill :-) Jo

  12. “She has a girl all the time.” LOL … must be why her husband keeps wanting another baby, trying for a boy. These are wonderful postcards, and I really like the last one with the two little girls. Great post!
