I found this suitcase in the shed at my brother's house. It was full of old papers: letters, forms, notes, pamphlets and all kinds of ephemera from years ago. Some were things like "Financial Planning During the Depression" or school notes, and there was a golf score card, too. It was a lot of interesting old papers, some of which had been moth-eaten, but all were in remarkably good condition regarding their age. I also love the stained fabric lining of the suitcase; I guess I have a thing for old, stained fabric.
I did nab this letter, addressed from my great grandfather's sister to my great grandfather. It was sent in 1940. I love that the envelope was also used as a notepad. I think it looks nice in a frame, not that I have much wall space left. . .
