McClaren Buggy Steveston BC 2006_0904, originally uploaded by Stephen Rees.

I saw an umbrella stroller today at the No 2 Road Pier. I could not find its owner, but it looks in very good shape to me.

From somewhere deep in the recesses of my cranium the words “Maclaren buggy” popped up – so I tried a Google and got this
