I have just become the proud owner of a Sol Whitby. Navy blue body with a navy interior. She is in good condition chassis in original paintwork and chrome work also in good condition. I'm planning to exhibit her at local rallies and country fairs.

I was given one of these prams last year.It has sat in my garage ever since as I collect only coachbuilt prams.I would love it to go to someone who would appreciate it,though it would need some work on it:the chassis is in fair condition,as is the interior,but the hood and apron could do with recovering.Free to a good home if new owner can collect from York.

I have a pram like this, mine has a navy lining and my hood arms are different to those on the one in the photo, chassis is the same with straps.

The Sol Whitby was used in London by nannies in the 1950's. It was purchased for travelling from town to country, often as an alternative to the big carriage built Millson's. It was used as in the photo for a baby or put on the chassis in the reverse position,with the handle at the back of the hood and the bottom half of the pram lowered for the use of an older child, up to the age of around three.

I was delighted to find a picture of the Sol Whitby. It is always one of my most favourite 'nanny prams' from the 1950's. The best of them were made throughout of black rubber duck. The material is not seen today. I have wondered, however, if the luggage of Louis Vuiton is not 'rubber duck.
