Such a lovely pram

Audio Transcript

We have... little bonnets, which... my foster... parents' daughter used to make for us.  She made all our clothes, and she used to knit all these bonnets, and we were obviously about two and a half, three there, I would imagine, so they had to take the centre of the pram, the base out, to put our legs down.  And it was such-- just such a lovely pram, you know, and I remember my foster parents taking us out all through the country lanes and that.
