Shwayder - Samson - Samsonite Trunk

Trunk is thought to have been used by CCC enrollee. The history of the Shwayder / Samson / Samsonite Company represented by this trunk is very interesting. The company seemed almost unstoppable. Unfortunately, the 1929 stock market crash and succeeding Great Depression quashed that perception.
