Troop 204

I dug this incredibly cool old box out of the dumpster behind my house a couple of months ago. I couldn't believe that someone would throw it away. I happened to see my neighbor in the alley a few days after and asked him if he had thrown it away. Not only did he throw it away he gave me the history of it and told me that the lid was in the dumpster also. Well, I got a pair of gloves and a long handled shovel and dug down to the bottom and found the lid. RAD!

My neighbors uncle had made this box in the 1920's when he was about 12 years old. He made it out of old fruit crates. I just can't believe that he threw it away!
