Comparison is kind of fun. The desk and everything is of a more recent vintage, but still very "used". The clutter remains, but no Claudette Colbert.

Radio

Boxed the 'half thousand', I presume it's envelopes not electronics due to what seems to be 'No 10' marked on the label.

Claudette Colbert

Considering the calendar page on his wall is three years old, it might be safe to say Cary has a crush on one of Gary Cooper's early co-stars.

Ink By the Pint

Carter's ink for fountain pens in the smaller 1 ounce bottle had cute and colorful labels in the '40s.
