CH2 – Carlo Harrison.
|Written By||Carlo Harrison.|
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.
I would have been twelve.
