Introducing to you all -- my first trunk! This one got the ball rolling some twenty five years ago. I was driving down my street when I saw a city garbage truck -- the kind that hauls big items. This little baby was sitting on top of the pile on its way to the dump. I have to follow it about 10 city blocks before I could finally pull up beside the driver and ask him if he would pull over and let me have the trunk he was carting away. He said he would for the price of a cup of coffee -- so I forked over a buck and had this stuffed in my trunk. I took it home and cleaned it up. My first love. Nice European trunk -- probably made in England. It has nice brass fittings, corners, latch and label. One rib is cracked but other than that a fine old specimen. This one has a place at the foot of our bed filled with priceless childhood memories. Best dollar investment I ever made....
