1950's Slate Blue/Gray Lady Baltimore Train Case

The skycap loaded five pieces of the blue Lady Baltimore luggage set onto the cart, stacking the small train case on the very top. He gave the petite brunette a claim ticket and tipped his hat to her, "Have a nice flight miss."

She pulled several dollars from her purse and slipped them into the skycap's hand.

"Why thank-you young miss."

Sarah Simmons turned and stepped through the airport terminal door and made her way to the TWA ticket counter. She was practically skipping to the counter, her giddy excitement barely restrained. This was Sarah's first international trip--her grandfather had given her a trip to Paris as a college graduation gift. A dream come true, two weeks in the City of Light.

"Next," the TWA clerk called out.

Startled, Sarah fumbled her tickets and passport and they launched into the air, fluttering to the floor in opposite directions.

A handsome young man in a dark blue suit immediately came to her rescue, scrambling around to retrieve her paperwork. He turned to return the items to the embarrassed owner, "Sarah?".

"Jack?" She said, her cheeks flushed.

It was Jack Thomas. He'd been in just about every one of her economics classes back at N.Y.U. but they had never really connected.

"Thank-you...are you going to Paris too?" She said as she nervously retrieved her travel papers him.

"Yes, it's a graduation gift from my Grandfather. You know, come to think of it, I think he knows your Grandfather." Jack said, staring deeply into Sarah's green eyes.
