Baggists: Bob Grove

San Diego baggist Bob Grove has framed much of his collection - some 632 bags - and displays them around his house.

"They hang on the walls of the three bathrooms", says Bob. "They have taken over a spare bedroom. I am pretty much out of wall space. I will not let them invade the dining room."

Sharp-eyed fellow-collectors will note a few prize items on display: ARP 410 Airlines, Surinam Airways, a bright red Empire, and ancient MAS and Gulf Air bags.

All this in San Diego - the new place of pilgrimage for the baggist confraternity.
