By 1938, the prospect of Britain entering into war with Germany looked increasingly likely. With these growing fears in mind, F.W. Mills from Kent designed a large pram to protect babies and toddlers from gas attacks that might feature in air raids.
The pram was designed as such that a child could be placed inside on a small bed, and a lid would be fastened over the top. The child would then receive 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.
