This trunk represents a 58-year old Pullman Porter from Chicago. The salary he earns supports his extended family, including a grandson who the Porter misses dearly during his long runs away from home. He has learned a great deal about the stock market from the wealthy businessmen whose conversations he overhears as he attends their cabins. The investments he makes based on this knowledge will eventually put his grandson through college.
