52 THINGS: secret compartment #1

Whilst planning how to fold this knitted scarf to best fit a drawer (above) in the old steamer trunk, I looked more closely and discovered two hinges on the lower portion of the back panel of the drawer. (See below.) And that, my friends, made me curious enough to pull the drawer out.
The back of the drawer had two metal pieces that flip up as shown below.

This then permits access to a space between the back of the drawer panel and the inside of the steamer trunk itself. Just the place to stash my spare $100 bills, if I had any. 

I called Mr. Myrt and we discovered two additional secret compartments! More on those later! 
Happy family tree climbing!
