When you think about it, strollers are just like cars in terms of how high-tech they’ve gotten these days. Push chairs nowadays come equipped with specially formed wheels for added traction and grip (whatever that means) and baskets that can be transformed into car seats and portable rockers…strollers, like vehicles, from a couple decades ago didn’t even have seat belts!
Below, we’ve grouped together some viewers’ photos of antique and vintage strollers. While some of them look beautiful, we think we’ll stick with the more modern ones, thank you very much.
What about you? Is there a stroller from another time period that you’d love to get your hands on?
from: Joyce Becker: “given to mother 44 years ago by an elderly neighbor. it changes from a highchair to stroller. Any ideas of age, Origin or worth? I could not find any markings. Thanks.”
from: Dusty Old Thing: “From Kathy Cappleman Everitt: “This is an old late 1940’s to early 1950’s TAYLOR TOT BABY STROLLER P-45.

from: Brenda Moore Bowden: “This stroller was my fathers. It is over 100 years old. The only marking on it says “The Tourist”. Any idea of it’s value?”
from: Holly Rodino Breese: “Can anyone tell me anything about this wicker stroller/pram? The seat is 18″ X 12″ and from back of seat to footrest measures 30″. I think it’s too large to be a doll stroller. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!”
