Here's a close-up of the suitcase handle. Yesterday's squint shot showed some of the contents inside. I am just so very curious about this piece of luggage I guess I'm going to have to bug Paul Harmon one more time to head up to the third floor of his building and inspect the contents a bit closer. As I look at the handle, though, I begin to wonder just how much this was really used. The leather is somewhat worn but not as much as I would expect for as old as it looks. I guess this will be one of those mysteries we will never solve.
And, speaking of mysteries . . . tomorrow and for a few days, we will be looking at quite a find as my friend and I dug through a bin of discarded wood and trim. Check it out tomorrow.
