Title
 
Crookes Sport bag
Description
 
A white sports bag with two handles and a zip. On the side it says ""Crookes Sport"" and is decorated with four red horizontal lines and a frieze of blue silhouettes of people doing sports. This bag was used by Kash, a homeless man who stayed at a bed and breakfast hostel in Thornton Heath in 1993. Kash became homeless after leaving his job as an accountant at a hospital in Ealing. The bag was one of the few objects he brought with him when he left his flat in West London. He was given a blanket (M/1995/29) as he hadn't brought any bedding with him and it was cold at night.
