Pope County Museum A-Z is a continuing feature of our blog. Each week, I will highlight an item or items from our Museum collection.
This week’s item is a wicker baby carriage for twins.
This baby buggy was used for Inez and Irene Taylor as infants. It was purchased second hand by their grandfather and dates to the 1890s. The twins donated it to the museum in 1961. It has wicker side by side seats with adjustable rounded foot covers and seat backs. It has an adjustable holder for a parasol, a foot break, and metal handle with wooden grips.There are pillow cushions on both seat, backs, sides, and in the foot rest.
