FDW





Came across this old canvas covered trunk a few weeks ago at an antique store in NH and it was love at first sight. I would have paid a pretty penny for this thing but I got lucky it was an incredible bargain.

So many great details on this one -- the monogramming, leather handles, a bunch of still functional compartments, old pictures hung inside, etc etc. A tag on the side tells me that at some point during the 1890's it was a on a ship from New York to Fall River, MA.

I believe that is William Tecumseh Sherman in the center of that group photo, is it not?
