EDM 2015 #20: Your Wallet/billfold.

EDM Every Day in May Facebook Group Sketch #20: Your wallet/billfold

Well, this is really my great-grandfather's wallet (Wilhelm Christoph Schmidt, born 1854, Elmshorn, Germany, near Hamburg, died 1915, East Orange, New Jersey, USA), but it belongs to me now. I found it in a box of my grandmother's memorabilia, and inside the wallet was his passport from 1872! His brother's birth certificate, and a poem written in old German script for someone's funeral, were also in the wallet, so it was a great find!
