WW1 Foot Locker


Recommended Posts

Picked up this foot locker today. 31x17x13. Lock serial number dates it to 1898-1906. The red, blue & white roundel was only used 1918-19, so that dates its use. Handles & reinforcing are leather as i believe the skin is. The skin is splitting but overall in

Good condition for about 114-122 years old.

 

Interior is showing age but is complete with lift out drawer & leather snap locks.

 

The hand painting is quality work, showing a winged roundel, H.S. ROSS, PORTLAND, OREGON.

 

 

ENJOY

Pretty cool. Didn't know they used private purchase luggage in WWI. Never really thought about that.

Have you been able to research the name?

Air Corps may have been allowed.

No research done.....very challenged in that arena.

Looking at the second card, is ASFS Air Service Flight School? 
If it is, this will be the first I've traced without help.
