Day 254 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Steamer Trunk

This is the last in the mini-series on trunks at the Hotel Boulderado. The steamer trunk (aka flat-top) first showed up in the late 1870s, though most of them date between 1880 and 1920. Their signature flat lid and durable coverings in canvas, leather, or patterned paper made them durable for long travels.
