Luggage of the 1950's

This bag belonged to a grandfather from Parkdale Elementary.  He used this bag for many years.  It was special to him because it was made of real leather.  He took very good care of it like many of his things. 

People in the 1950's were careful to take care of their things.  Things that they owned that got broken or damaged were fixed not replaced.  This is definitely different from today.
