History and brochures of several pram brands.





The archive.

History of the brands of prams.

Preserve information.

At this page we like to present some information about the history of the differend brands of dolls prams en fullsize prams. By clicking on the logo you will open a page containing the information of that brand, often with catalogues or overview of types, as far as we could collect. Because of the many small brands it is impractible to be complete. Generally we limit ourselves to the brands that are old or make retro prams. Also the brand must be known in the UK and/or the Netherlands.

We have grouped the brands by country, of course it is possible to add more later.

Pram museum.

In this way we hope to make a kind of online prammuseum where we collect and preserve information that would be lost. Already at this moment it is hard to find additional information, most branches do not excist anymore and those who do, do not have or share much themselves. So we can use any support we can get! We´re particulary looking for photos of the original factories with manufacturing processes and catalogues or leaflets with names and/or numbers.

Caja kinderwagenwielenfabriek (pramwheels producer)

We have made an exception to Caja kinderwagenfabriek. They produced spoke wheels and parts to almost every major brand and that´s why they may not be missing at this place in our opinion.

Sources

We used several sources and if possible we´ve named the source. Explicit we name two books namely: "Prams, Mailcarts & Bassinets" by Jack Hampshire, the reference-book of English prams, and "De geschiedenis van de kinderwagen" by Mieneke van Noort of the Dutch prammuseum, a more recent book (Dutch) with more attention to the dutch brands. (for pictures of both books: see "Miscellaneous").


Disclaimer

If you find incorrect information please do not hesitate to contact us. We are completely depending on information of others and try to be as accurate as possible. We can however garantee nothing because it is almost impossible to verify.
