Hi. Just wanted to say thank you! We were watching a film this afternoon which had a scene with a Paul Jones dance in it! My mum and dad had a Scottish dance band back in the day (1950’s and 1960’s in Skye, 1970’s and 1980’s In Inverness) and this was occasionally done, especially in the summer when there were tourists up, so that is where I was aware of it from. Anyway, the inevitable “why is a Paul Jones called a Paul Jones” came up today which led us to reading about John Paul Jones (what an extraordinary life!) and then led us to you. So, again, thanks for your research eight years ago and just wanted to say it was all worth it! Cheers, Marion Urquhart nr Inverness

I found a steamer trunk at an estate sale with a card on the side that said Paul Jones comic opera. The trunk was brand new in 1904. Found in a Long Island town known for. A popular destination for entertainment. Stencil on the top are the initials JM. Should I take it to the Antiques Roadshow?
