Social History

Mrs A Neville of 59 Hawke Street West Melbourne and her novel suitcase-on-wheeles. With this case on a carrier invented by Mrs. Neville some time ago, she can travel at ease and at a good pace through the streets with her marketing, and even in saletime crowds she finds it easy to manage and no trouble in crowded stores. Any size of case can be used on the carrier which is adjustable in size.
