A Gas Proof Pram

Written by: George Chittenden : 22 Jul 2019

This photo features a rather surprising invention, a gas resistant pram. It was created in 1938 by FW Mills from Kent. The prospect of Britain going to war with Germany looked increasingly likely, so this large pram was designed to protect babies and toddlers from gas attacks that might feature in air raids.

The child received a supply of fresh air from a gas filter attached to the top of the lid. A rubber bulb was also added to the end of the pram to push out the stale air.
