Frank's Trunk

Large Orient Make Car / Travel Trunk
Made from Vulcanised Fibre to keep weight to a minimum this trunk also has thick leather corner protectors, leather straps and leather lock cover. The trunk has a brass lock and wooden struts to the base. It has an internal tray and straps, with an address label dated 1948.
The trunk has a cabin baggage label from the Orient Line, circa 1950s, which are collectable in their own right.
A lovely, chunky trunk with age related wear.

The Exterior Name and Address reads 'Dr F Howarth'.
With a little research;
Professor Frank Howarth, a pharmacologist from Cambridge University, was appointed as Dean of the medical faculty at Haile Sellassie University, Addis Ababa on July 20, 1964 . Frank’s wife Mrs. Howarth said “When approached Frank said that he had always wanted to design and run a Medical School in a third world country where with his system he could reduce the costs but still produce excellent students” He went on to establish medical schools in Ethiopia, Jordan, Nigeria and Yemen.
