Thank you so much to those who sent in comments regarding my recent post about the BBC Call The Midwife pram blunder, it certainly caused a lot of discussion. Here are the comments sent to me:
Looking forward to May when once again I can take my new grandson out in my 90′s silverstream, which is a magnet in my village.
I will try and get to the 40′s weekend in Stanhope, where I live, this summer to see other pram fans.
keep up the good work
Kind regards, Christine
One of the mums at our school is very high up on the production of this programme. I told her it was not the right type of pram and I shall send her these pictures. Well done, they should get it right.
I suppose the BBC wanted to portray a brand new pram to tie in with the story, but they could have got a restored older model instead of this one.
Why don’t these tv people check they have got things right, vintage and retro are very much in fashion just now, I dread to think what else they will get in the wrong era in other programmes, all they had to do was look on the Internet for a fifties pram to see the style, but I suspect you are right Lucy, they think all prams are the same.
Thank you, I have just bought an Allwin pushchair so I can also attend more forties events this summer. This is a picture of the pushchair, not sure of its exact age but I remember my aunt having a similar one for her baby in the 1950s, yet another pram which would show the Props Dept of “Call the Midwife” the kind of prams around in that era.
I really love getting these snippets of photos and info. Keep up the good work.Beautiful little Wilsonette, l would love to own one of these. Thank you for this information.
