Uncle Brud's Travel Kit

Uncle Brud, 1913, aboard the
S.S. Kronprincessin Cecilie
Uncle Brud traveled a great deal for a variety of reasons. As a young man he spent time away at college learning all of the accounting skills that made him a successful banker.

Brud was very health conscious and  seemed to be on the "sickly" side so he spent time at sanitariums/health resorts like the one in Battle Creek Michigan.

And he loved to travel for adventure such as the great American west and a trip to the Panama Canal and Cuba in 1913, a year after the death of his father J.W. Moran.

So when I look at Brud's travel kit, I wonder about all of the places it's been that we'll never about.
