names

G.W. Fearnside was once the owner of this little chest. Where did they go? And what did they do while they were there? The scratches and dents on the metal show that the box was well used, and a sticker on the side lets us know that at some point the box was either shipped or went traveling with G.W. What did this person do with their life? Other than a name on the front of the box, we know nothing about them. It’s just an antique black box, but when I look at it I can’t help but imagine the past, the previous owner, and what their life was like.
