Woman pushing infants in a pram. A mother pushes her two children along Sutton High Street in a pram. Such prams had a deep well in the centre. Across the well lay a removable board, which babies lay on when small. Once a toddler, the child would sit in the pram, with feet in the well. The unknown photographer who captured this image used a 35-millimetre camera, and produced hundreds of photos of individuals walking along Sutton High Street. The photographer usually waited until the subject became aware of the camera before seizing the portrait.
