Great Northern Baggage Tag

This baggage tag doesn’t have a date, but the Rocky logo dates it to 1967 or later. The back of the tag indicates it was specially made for tour groups, and this particular tag was used for a “Univ Hi” tour. University High School was a Minneapolis school located on the University of Minnesota campus to allow university students to get experience teaching. The school closed in 1982.

The tag also has a destination scrawled on it that looks like “B.m.” Assuming the tour was on the Western Star, which usually handled tour groups, that could be Breckenridge, Minnesota. However, Great Northern fans reading this post may have a better idea what this abbreviation means.
