About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Richard as a Baby: 1945

Richard as a Baby: 1945

My husband as a baby in 1945 - check out the stroller! In his backyard in Highland Park, CA.

That's a Shuler

That's a Shuler Streamliner walker/stroller, patented in 1944-46 and far harder to find than a Taylor Tot. it has a trunk in the back. I bought one last week for $75! They were also made in Cleveland. I am having a lot of trouble finding out about the history except their building was new in around 1944; I have no idea how long they were made.

Taylor-Tot stroller

I am about the same age as your husband and I had a stroller almost exactly like that. They were made by the Taylor Tot company.

In the photo below from 1945 it shows what looks to be a very similar stroller. I was about one year old at the time.
