Leitz 1909年製の顕微鏡

I have an old wooden box at home to keep an old microscope that is a product of Leitz made in Germany in 1909. The front door of the box is decorated by several pieces of workmanship. But the backside is just covered with a peace of old paper that seems to hide the damaged area of the box. The carbon black staining suggests the history of the box. Almost the end of the Second World War in 1945, Nagoya city was heavily attacked by US air forces and Kojima hospital was burnt down. My grand father was a surgeon and a director of the hospital. He barely rescued the microscope from the fire.
