Can this collection still be saved?
Re- cleaning & detailing of prams that were in excellent condition nine years earlier
April 2009 - four months after loosing all dry and covered storage options
Time has certainly been the enemy here, and in more ways than one. Some of the original prams photographed in other sections of this online museum are now looking very similar to these prams here...or worse. These were some of the low mileage, one-owner originals that were tracked down and saved through time.
There will never be another chance to collect and save an all Australian made vintage pram collection like this ever again, yet so many of these prams could still be re-restored (at least to 80% of what they were) and preserved.
It is heartbreaking to see large chunks of this timeline collection slowly being destroyed all around , but under a multitude of current circumstances, There is little chance of real change at the moment and some of the rarest 'one-off' prams are also slowly degrading outside again.:
