All Aboard! Trunks and Grips from the Collection
April 20, 2013- October 5, 2013
From carpet-bags to a wardrobe trunk checked at the luxurious Hotel Herring in Amarillo, PPHM has an extensive travel bag collection. Frequently, these pieces of luggage have stories to tell about the places they’ve been and the people who carried them. This exhibition examines the development of travel luggage from the earliest examples carried by wagon to the golden age of train travel in the United States.
