A Peak in Eleanor Powell's Steamer Trunk

Eleanor Powell's Steamer Trunk

Shipping Address:
Eleanor Powell
1012 Cove Way
Beverly Hills, California

I tied to map the address, and it does not appear that the number exists on Cove Way anymore.  The number must have been changed at some point after she lived there.  The address did exist as of 1956 when her husband at the time Glenn Ford registered to vote.

The contents as far as I can tell include:
Three-pane mirror
Hat box
Satchel labeled "Rosin Box"
Box of portable lights possibly
From the labels remaining, I could only read that she had one drawer of hose

What other treasures would have been in this steamer trunk?  I'm thinking some fabulous costumes and tap shoes.

When I worked as a stylist for the auction house Bukowskis here in Sweden a few months ago, we photographed a few big Louis Vuitton travel trunks from the turn of the 19th/20th century. One of them looked almost exactly like Eleanor's steamer trunk on the inside. Wish I could have kept it! It would have been perfect in my boudoir! :) xox
