My great aunt Marion (Coyle) McCall Kunemund lived in New York City for most of her life. When we visited her there in the 1950s & 1960s we saw her writing desk, her secretary. In the 1970s she moved to Florida and the writing desk came to our house.
My mother had always admired the desk and she loved having it in a place of honor in our living room. My mother kept her writing papers and photographs inside.
The desk now has a place in my bedroom. The dark wood matches our bedroom furniture nicely. I keep a collection of framed family photos on the shelves and greeting cards in the drawers. I am very happy to have my turn with this family treasure.
