This trunk sat in my family's drug store in Monmouth, IL for the last 75 years or more. We know nothing about it, or trunks in general. The label on the side says "John Handley & Sons" and "Glasgow". There are blue stars on the inside and leather straps on the outside. Seems to be made of canvas..? There is also a sticker on the side that says "Union Passenger Station Chicago.", "U.PS. 14". My family's "story" that has been passed down is that it could have belonged to a magician named The Great Nicola!! Some writing on the lock hinge, but all we can make out is "333".
