This is Still the Place: Utah's 1897 Pioneer Jubilee


Sea Chest. Painted to look like mahogany woodgrain, this chest belonged to Joseph Toronto and accompanied him on many trips across the ocean from Sicily to Nauvoo and finally to Utah. Records indicate this chest was used to hold the oyster cans containing the gold used to print the first copy of the Book of Mormon. Made around 1830, this wooden chest was painted in a manner to suggest grained wood. The top is marked "JTY" and the inside has a special compartment. (Catalogue, p. 28) (Accession # 3387; dimensions: height 18" x width 18" x length 41.5"; donors: Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Toronto)
