Olive’s Pram from Strokestown Park

Strokestown House Olive's Pram

Olive Packenham Mahon was born in 1895 and was raised at Strokestown Park House, Co. Roscommon. Her pram would have been a top of the range pram, a Leveson. The brand name is on the handle but you can see how this has been worn from use …

As with all of these prams the hood arms and hub caps would be brass, and the seating area in the pram would lift up to accommodate a new baby  like a cradle area … then Olive as she became a toddler and much older, maybe up to  the age of 6 years. Her nanny would have used the pram for the garden and nursery to transport Olive around.
