When A Token Of Your Youth Returns

In 1949 Henry Leland, fresh out of the Navy, stopped at Geneva-On-The-Lake near Cleveland for a few days off on his way home. While there, Leland's wallet turned up missing. 60 years later, it was found and returned to Leland.

Here's a pic of Leland and the man who found his wallet, Jerry Busch:

Imagine the memories you'd have if something as intimate as a wallet were returned to you after being missing that long. Pulling out each card, picture, scrap of paper would have a significance, some slight, some great. A miniature time capsule of your own possessions.
