My piece about Kresta prams brought this response from Trevor Brown who lives on Eastern Road, Portsmouth.

This is his son Darren in his pram in 1971 when the family lived at Cardiff Road, North End.

The receipt for the pram from Weeks, of Fawcett Road, Southsea.

It cost £34.95 plus 50p for a fly and dust net and with a rug too the total came to just £39.20.
