Linen chest

This abandoned trunk had already been opened and the contents strewn about. Colorful old clothes (rags, really) and old newspapers made an artful composition. I'll bet that trunk would be worth a few bucks in an antique shop, but it wasn't ours to take.

The old truck makes a fine subject for your picture. A very successful post.

I would love to have that trunk. I have several old trunks in use at my house. Lovely image.
