Sylvia traveled happily with Enoch for many years. While we are unsure as to where their travels took them, we do know that they carried these beautiful, well-crafted bags. They most doubtably did not wear velvet or cotton sweatsuits when traveling either. The zippered compartment of the second bag was probably used to hold a pair of shoes. Perhaps they were used for overnight travel, carried along with a garment or suit bag for a wedding or special occasion. While taking the trash out one morning, my pal Michael bought these on his neighbors stoop sale.
