Pack Box

Continuing my search for backpacks and rucksacks throughout history, I keep coming across various types of boxes and baskets strapped to people’s backs.  While querying the web today for variations of the Asian pack box, I saw this nifty solution.  Cheap, easy to construct and extremely functional.

Found here:

I can imagine this as an excellent platform for a street performer or busker.  Solidly built, this can be a table or a seat and provides a high degree of protection for the contents.  This one is very simply built and harkens back to a medieval concept but note the sweet dovetails holding it together.  I just want a peek inside.  I would be sorely tempted to fill it with compartments.

More nifty ideas to follow.
