Silver Cross advertisement
Advertisement for Silver Cross prams (or baby coaches), featuring an immaculately turned out young 1950s mother wearing an off the shoulder pink dress with pearls, heels and long yellow gloves, pushing a happy looking little baby in the 'world's most exclusive baby coach'. A smiling policeman sees them across a zebra crossing, while a Rolls Royce waits for them to cross.
