    Nice old Gent's trunk. I have seen similar trunks in early trunk catalogs and they did call them Gent's trunks. Made by many U.S. trunk companies between the late 1890's until about 1915 in this style. The number 36 was probably for the size, 36" wide trunk. People used these for a long time. Sounds like some interesting old newspapers too.
