Baby in a Victorian pram (West Ardsley) (7 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. This posed photograph was taken in West Ardsley by William Mann of East Bierley near Bradford. A woman, wearing a plain dark dress with leg of mutton sleeves, lace collar and starched white apron, is standing beside a baby in a Victorian perambulator. Prams were first seen around 1850 and became very fashionable throughout the Victorian era. They were seen as a status symbol because they were costly. The pram in the picture has high wheels and a hood to protect the baby from the elements. The baby, asleep, looks almost too big for it and is wearing a knitted bonnet. Image used courtesy of Peter Aldred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
