  5. Hey Thanks Drill! Based upon that info I was able to go to Jims list and find a date at least. this helps me assume the 1880-1890 is in fact feasible. I gleaned these maker names and address with the ...

  13. How cool is that!! They were sure more imaginative in those days when it came to advertising..lol
  14. What an eye drill!! After saving the image and zooming in you can see the word street and something just before it. Also in front of "Valises" looks to be the partial remnants of the word trunk which...
  15. This is a very common trunk and one you see the most of. Its nice when it is all cleaned up. The latches on this trunk were still being offered in 1908 with the front pressed steel or tin face cover ...

  17. Sorry ...looking at the lid compartments again, I see only one hinge location on each end bottom, which would indicate the fold down lid compartment was a single all the way across with two lock tabs,...
  18. One thing I have learned by researching trunks is that without a makers label because of the vast amount of trunk makers in operation at the time it is virtually impossible to confirm. If no makers la...
