Old school bag

The life of a teenager in the 50s: we can hardly imagine what it must have been like. Yet this is now possible, thanks to the discovery of an old school bag. The items that were found in the bag give us a unique insight into the life of the young student. The bag was found by a North Canton Middle School janitor in the US state of Ohio. The man was performing some maintenance work on the lockers when he noticed the striking bright red bag that was lying behind the lockers.

Student Patti Rumfola

The old school bag turned out to be over 60 years old. Staff looked in the bag in an attempt to locate the owner. It turned out to be a student named Patti Rumfola. In 1957 she lost her bright red school bag by placing it on top of the lockers. Without realizing it, her red bag fell behind the lockers. Perhaps the student thought that her bag was stolen, because the bag was never removed from behind the lockers.
