There was a name on the end, Russell Clark of New Orleans and I did find an actor in the 1920's with this name. Could be the same guy, but I wanted to work on the labels before I decided it was his.
I pieced together the two labels in photoshop to see if I could pull any more info out of the labels. I knew I would be able to complete the address, though I was guessing not the establishment.
This appears to be a hotel with 156 rooms and the proprietors would fit the EA and the BCOCK on the label to my luggage... but what is this place! What kind of food did Felix Delill cook? When was Theodore Fassig the steward? Was is fancy? Was it an apartment hotel?
I still do not know, but hopefully I will soon. In the mean time, here are some detail shots of the trunk... currently airing on the patio.
