I don't know much about this trunk. I got it from my Aunt about 10 years ago and finally got around to trying to do something with it. It belonged to her parents. Her father worked for the railroad. When I opened the trunk I found two vintage dresses and a pair of shoes, shaving soap and a brush handle (the brush part for the lather was missing) and some old medicine bottles with corks and wire pull tops. On the top left side, it looks like someone stood on the truck and put their foot through the lid so there is some damage. I know it isn't worth a whole lot and I'm wondering is it worth putting the money into it to have it repaired. So far all I have done is clean it with murphy's oil soap and a little linseed oil. I love the trunk as it is and plan to use it for storing board games and puzzles for the grankids.
