Frank Del Rosso's mother used to run a boarding house for fisherman in the offseason. The men had few belongings and lived out of trunks. This trunk belonged to Leonardo Farinola who was presumed drowned in a fishing accident in Shark Bay. The trunk has since been in the Del Rosso family for many years. The lock was broken but no contents remain.
