Harry M’s case wasn’t technically a suitcase, but it contained some interesting things.

I’m not sure what the wooden object on the left is, but the Latimer White Petroleum Jelly label is quite nice.  And the Prell shampoo bottle is classic.  The label had fallen off, but it has the “Rinse, Lather, Repeat” admonition that got consumers to use twice as much as they probably needed.

I have been editing and uploading more of the suitcases, and you can see the latest here.  Just click on “The Cases” at the top of the page.  Thanks for following.

    Have you ever photographed anything from Greystone Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey? My great aunt was an inmate there until her death in 1944. We don’t know why she was admitted there- it’s a mystery to us.

      Tricia, Thanks for your comment. No I have not photographed anything from Greystone. There are so many mysteries around these type of places, and it is sad to think about a family member who spent time there and where little is known about them. All best, Jon
