I must introduce by saying that these boxes you see in my blog here have collected themselves at home, instead of someone collecting them!! But the good thing is, fortunately, they have not been thrown away. The reason for this may be because there was space to accommodate and opportunity to keep some of them in use.

There are many photos with short descriptions in my blog: please see them - some are really old: http://mysoreanmusings.blogspot.com/2009/04/box-collection.html

I consider this as a box here and begin this thread - this is a lunch carrier from the olden days. Total height is about 1'. One person could empty the contents! One good meal during the day was enough and the next meal was at dinner. They were days when no junkies were available nor discovered!

There were actually 'kobwebs' on it on the attic! I just wiped it off with the fingers!

Actually that was an old entry. I've since posted many on various other subjects. Do you like to have a dekko again at that blog?
