Heavy metal Borough of Southsea salary box, probably from 1930s/40s. Has 5 drawers with 45 small metal coin containers in each drawer (5 missing of 225!) - would have been used to distribute salary payments to the workers (most likely public sector as it has 'Borough of Southsea' printed on the front). Has 2 carry handles.......probably needed 2 people to carry it when full!
Measures 45cm wide x 26cm deep x 24cm high
