For Friday and the weekend, let’s look at a few more old photos from Jack and Marge Day’s collection, shall we?

First up: a fabulous, old (but undated) photo of several elegant ladies in a carriage piled high with trunks.

This photo was one of several that the Days acquired from an old news service. On the back is taped the typewriten text that would’ve accompanied the photo in an ad, apparently for travel insurance. The note (dated Nov. 29, 1932) says, “New Ways for Old. In the days when personal baggage was never lost sight of during the journey, the traveler had little cause to worry about his personal effects. Today even with the modern efficiency of man and carriers, loss and damage does occur. Let our Tourist Baggage policy afford you constant financial protection against such loss.”
