Hundred-Year-Old Likly Luggage Advertisement

19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Sunday, August 16, 1914:  We did our packing this afternoon. We are going to make two traveling bags do us. Had quite a time a frisking around. Ruth got company later on. We intend going to Church this evening. Must go and eat my supper, so good-bye old Diary until I return from my trip, for I am not going to take you with me.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Grandma—

Have an awesome time in Niagara Falls! It should be an amazing trip. Were your bags made by Likly?
