The oil cloth on that stroller could be from the war years, it was used in place of leather, before vinyl was widely available. But it was around well before the war, so could be anywhere around 1925-1945. Style says mid 30's to mid 40's.

 

This is the older stuff I got today for about twice the price of scrap. David Bradley disk, best thing about it was when I was loading it the guy that scraped it was unloading some more stuff. He told me he had the whole tractor at home and is suppose to call me tomorrow if it is not raining. He doesn't want tire tracks in the yard. That last item is a old seeder, I thought I has the bag and phone where the name, where it was made and the patent number but I guess that's what I get for thinking. The stroller is pre 1945 as in 1945 they started making the front wheels where they would swivel. My guess is pre W.W. II because of the metal in it.

Think you are about right on the age. I was thinking pre war because of the amount of metal in it.

Color is sort of creepy like you would see in the "Munsters" when it was on T.V. Hadn't thought of it that way.

I would hitch the discs up to the rear axle of the carriage, mount the chair on the disc frame like a sulky, and take it for a ride down the steep hill in front of my parents house. Probably lose control and leave some skin on the road. Well, I would have done that 35 years ago, HA! I don't know how we survived childhood. Anyway, great score on the vintage items!
