BROOKS Quick Release Bag Carrier from the 1950's
(Picture donated by Andrew Hunter at Brooks England)

In the fall of '04 we asked if collectors had ever seen one of these bag attachments in the flesh.

Andrew Hunter, from Brooks, wrote that they had recently added one of these gizmos to the company collection but, until they saw this article on our webpage, they couldn't figure how it worked.

Andrew sent a picture (below) of this piece along with some images of beautiful Brooks trunks that they had recently picked up.

Thanks, Andrew. It's nice to see that the people running the company appreciate its history.
