Thank you all for posting your memories and information. It is of great help.

I would still love to hear more from anyone else who might have memories of baby or pram shops in Glasgow. Or for that matter, Churchill Prams on Commerce Street, Gorbals.

All information is useful.

Thank you again and look forward to reading more!

John

My grandfather worked for Churchill Prams 50's /60's. Apart from having a Churchill pram in maroon, he gave me a Churchill Doll's Pram in same colour, with matching bag. Still have it to this day.

Can ANYONE help me find out what company made my pram, what year,etc??

It Says "SpringTime" and waterl;oo on a sticker, but searching, I am finding nothing. I am located in canada. The following link is a picture of the pram:

[Link not working.]

and if anyone could email me with any information I would really appreciate it. I would like to know how valuable this pram is, or if it is just a piece of junk.

my email is: kristenmerinsky@hotmail.com

I ordered my first pram in Newcastle. The shop refused to take any deposit and definitely would not give it to me until after the baby was born as this was considered bad luck. In the end a friend gave me a Tansad in good condition for free so I ended up canceling the order.

I was a manager in a baby wear shop ( 1981-1986 ) who specialised in prams and pushchairs. If you are looking for information on the eighties , I am happy to help.

Mothercare. It was blue brushed material with white wheels. Elizabeth was days old when I got a taxi into town and boutht it, then walked home to Edmond Street pushing it. Then...bumped it up three flights of stairs. nearly killed myself!
Miss Cosh in Duke Street is where I bought all my baby things including the pram quilts and things.
