    Description
    Made in Australia around the 1940s, this canvas meat bag was the original cover for a homemade belly board (00033576).
    SignificanceThis cover is an important example of the innovative reuse of materials during the 1940s.
    HistorySurf boards are often stored and moved in surf board bags. Bags are made of cloth or plastic, and help prevent minor dings and scratches, as well as protect the board from sunlight.
