I would say the pram comes from an earlier era.

A pram such as that was much prized for its wheels. Many a one ended its days as a kert. They just don't make them like that any more!!

[Colin's corrected the description, since it said they were from Kirkwall originally- Steven]

When I was about 1 year old we had a pram like this.
It survived to the early years of the War. You could put messages (Shopping)under the floor of it, Very Handy for Mother. I will attach a photo of this pram later.

Would have thought this wis just a common pram. The dog wis called Tip.Wir parents get her as a wedding present fae Jeemie Maxwell o the Myres. Older Kirkwallians may remember him farming Tradespark. A good dog was very handy in them days when you had to let all the cattle oot every day for a drink during the winter

My informative Wife told me that if you removed some of the floor of these prams, the Bairns could put the legs and feet in the hole.
