Suitcases

November 20, 2008 - 10:35 AM

When I found these old leather luggage tags I couldn't help but get them for the the whole family in an ode to Wes Anderson. Now we all run to the train station in slow motion.

Suitcases have been around for a long time.... So have wheels.... So I've always wondered why it took us so long to put the two together? I can't say for sure, but I don't think wheeled suitcases really started being produced until the late 1980's. I'll have to investigate that.
