Lost Purse From The 50s, Is Like A Time Capsule

Last spring, someone at North Canton Middle School found an impressive artifact. Jammed in the corner of the wall next to a locker, there was a small, red purse hidden in dust and spiderwebs. Upon closer examination, the lucky finder recognized that the purse belonged to a young lady named Patti Rumfola. According to the findings in her purse, Patti, who may have gone to school in the 1950s or 1960s, was around 14 years old at the time that she lost her purse.
