    London.

    Various shots show the latest ideas from the leather goods industry at the Leather Fair.

    A woman looks at two cocktails bags, a jazzy one made from straw with leather handles and "an all-purpose musical bag" that plays a tinkly tune when it is opened (expect the novelty wore a bit thin after the 100th opening).

    Another small case has a tiny iron inside "so you can laugh at the creases in your clothes when you get to the seaside". Another woman opens a vanity or cosmetic case and sets up a mirror inside that "lets you powder under the chin, too". The same girl packs frilly panties and a nightie in a case with special compartments for different clothes.

    A man opens a suitcase and puts his shoes in a special shoe-carrier inside, then walks off with the case.
