Showcase cover image for Steamer Trunk

General Information

This style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travel was common
and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic)
for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more.
So they carried everything neatly packed in large wooden trunks. The rounded top was to prevent
other trunks from being stacked on top of theirs. This style had several names such as dome top,
camel back, turtle back, etc.
