I purchased a steamer trunk several years ago in Houston. It is from the Galveston Trunk Company probably around 1890's. The initials on the outside are J C Borden and there is a picture of a young woman on the inside of the lid. I believe her hair is brown. I am trying to find out more about this young lady. I am wondering if the initials are hers or her husbands.
I will try to take pics tomorrow and attach in this thread.
Please email me directly if this rings a bell. I was considering selling this at auction but would be very happy for it to find a home with family.
