Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
Not directly related to this particular post of yours, but I thought you might find this interesting. If, for no other reason, than it shows specific time-period pieces of real stuff. The fact it's from asylum inmates just takes it up a notch. Check it out: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/abandoned-suitcases-reveal-private-lives-of-insane-asylum-patients/
@ anonymous: I read that article and just as importantly, the replies from readers. I can’t decide which is more poignant, the old luggage or the living stories of the respondents. Thank you for posting this article despite it being off topic. We learn about being people anthropologically such as looking at suitcases, but also through listening to those who are still here.
