Written By Carlo Harrison.
Comment See below…

In Forli, Italy, in May 1947, the sight of this type of pram was common place, nothing unusual at all, however in May 1947, Yeadon, it turned quite a few heads.
When my mother came over from Italy, pregnant, she brought with her a steamer trunk which I have in my attic and a pram.
I don’t know the circumstances as to why my Mum and Dad shipped a pram over from Italy, or how they managed it but there it was in the Streets of Yeadon.
Ever since I can remember up to and including about a month ago, people have said to me ‘oh yes I remember your mum and that pram she had.’
The pram was famous, not me!

Oh yes, I remember it well. What a proud mum she was.
