Social club artefact Wednesday - Battered leather travel bag

This is yet another item found while going through the social club during its packing away stage several years ago now - in fact, in this photo you can even see some other items already covered in bubble wrap. I can't remember exactly what was in this bag, but it was probably just some empty cash bags for banking, made of cloth rather than plastic. That's what leads me to believe it was a bag used for, among other things, transporting cash around back in the day. Aesthetically, it's not a remarkable item, and it's obviously not in great shape, but as one of the older items still extant in the social club at the time, it does hold some interest.

    1. If it was, it was long gone by the time I got to the bag. More promising on that front was a safe that was in the old board room, which at least rattled when it was shook, but even that was a bust.

    Yet newsworthy. Can someone explain this shit to me ?

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
