Clearing Aunt’s House (2)

February 8, 2010

Yesterday I had found more than just jars. Today’s report concerns what was found in the small back bedroom, which had been made into an office. The original furnature seems to include a fold down bed, which is a bit of a surprise given that the room was larger than the bedroom I grew up in. Anyhow, this room clearly was more special, in that it has quite a lot of old, and nice looking furnature This includes a wooden filing cabinet and a bureau (currently almost hidden by boxes.

Underneath some boxes was this wooden box:

I was not sure what I would find in here – valuable documents?

But no, it is some kind of writing box,filled mostly with plain paper an envelopes of various sizes. I’m guessing here, but I suspect this belonged to my maternal grandfather (ditto the bureau, filing cabinet etc). An interesting find, but what to do with it?
