    My favorite feature of this family heirloom from a long 40 years ago is the interior with the tray and inserts. Has a rather striking trim with the usual Victorian illustrations.
    In photo #2 the hook can be seen that holds up the tray when the lid is opened. That is much easier than having to remove the tray to reach the lower section of the trunk which is where most of the clothes would be stored.
    Photo #3 shows what I believe is the hat box. There is a compartment behind it for various accessories. I think undies or some such went in the compartment to the left.
    Wrapping it up is the compartment in the top of the lid. One can never have enough compartments in the trunk.
    Apparently in the long ago people took long vacations.

      That interior with the different compartments is outstanding. Nicest one I've seen from that period.

      Thank you very much elanski. The interior may be the best part of this one.

      Thank you very much Thomas. It will be filled with Johnny West accessories, figures and horses.

      Thank you very much keramikos. Where I live was a resort area for local farmers in the summer. It is 20-30 degrees cooler than down the hill where the farms were. So they spent the summers up here. The crops didn't require much care in those months.

      Thank you very much OLECODY. They may just tell me to book a flight on DHL.

      Hey any time!! Thats a huge top tray! Great colors! I have yet to get one that does the hook thing, I have them with the hook, but no trays ever.

      You may not have noticed this but I am a huge tray fan too. I open trunks all the time to check for a tray.
