Show and tell Sunday, #3

Today's show and tell is my father's very vintage doctor's bag!

There's not really much of a story associated with this one; I just like it.  It is so reminiscent of days gone by.  When daddy started practicing medicine, he did go on house calls.  I was so young, I don't remember much about that--or whether or not he actually carried this bag.  I do remember that my mom insisted he stop making house calls because she had to go with him (for propriety's sake).  Since I was a baby, this was immensely inconvenient.  Another factor in stopping those house calls was the fact that he rarely got paid for making them!
