have been widely used in the UK since the Victorian era. As they
developed through the years suspension was added, making the ride
smoother for both the baby and the person pushing it. In the
1970s, however, the trend was more towards a more basic version,
not fully sprung, and with a detachable body known as a
"carrycot". Now prams are very rarely used, being large
and expensive when compared with "buggies". One of the
longer lived and better known brands in the UK is Silver Cross,
first manufactured in Guiseley, near Leeds, in 1877, though this
factory has now closed down.
