    Still working on this one. It belonged to a lady who would be more that 100 years old by now. Her name was Jessie Dunn. She was accomplished in her time, the daughter of the editor of a Birmingham AL newspaper. She founded the Woman's Aviator Assoc in America, flying planes in WWII from the manufacturor to their homebase airfield. I only learned this after she was gone and I found the newspaper clippings she had saved. I feel honored to have this trunk.
    I have found that as time goes by, learning more about the craft from this site, I have to go back and complete, change, add steps I had previously missed. Couldn't have done it without the experience of others. Thanks.
