Day 56 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Antique Trunks

Back when the Hotel Boulderado opened in 1909, travel was a much slower process. As a result, people would take longer vacations and trips. Huge trunks, like the ones you see here, were popular between the 18th and 20th centuries, when smaller, lighter suitcases were introduced. When a guest brought their trunk to the Boulderado, he or she would unpack the contents and the trunk itself was stored in our basement (now known as Catacomb's Bar).
