My Latest Aquisition

I have been on the lookout for a steamer trunk that I could use as a coffee table. I put the word out on various buy and sell sites, and have chased around looking for just the right item. About a week ago, I had a message from one of the site users, that I someone had one listed. I looked at the pictures and sent the seller a message asking if I could go see it. I drove an hour to get to the place, thank goodness for GPS.

I found this old trunk sitting in an garage, looking a little battered, but it was just what I was looking for. 

I am now the proud owner of a circa 1911 steamer trunk, with all the trays inside and as an added bonus it even came with the key!

I have been carefully cleaning it up so it can sit in my living room.
