Perfect for me...l am a danger with tools in my hands smile
John Prior: Thanks Zed, sounds like a good ploy smile
I always feel sad when I see something like this, with just a few bits left behind. Someone loved it once!
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, One does wonder how it ended up abandoned.
As decrepit as it looks it's stranget that a few screws seem to have been left laying in the old box.
John Prior: Thanks Brian. I was surprised it had not ended up in the canal.
Very vintage, very interesting!
John Prior: Thank you Malmuna, it was an unusual find.

A fine close in shot of this over-the-hill tackle box or tool box. I like how the exposure and processing makes the box light in tone.
John Prior: Thank you Don.

excellent grit and texture. I'm surprised there's anything left in the box at all.
John Prior: Thank you Otto
