During a rainy-day antique shop excursion, I found this barely used relic of the 1970s and was excited to give it a little Peg and Awl upgrade. We swapped out the webbing for our vegetable tanned leather straps which look wondrous with the reddish NYPL lions on either side.
A splendid vintage find!
