Rowe's invention "relates to a bundle or parcel holders and carriers, and has for its object to produce a holder especially adapted for school children. The shaft on which the binding strands or tapes are wound is tubular and used as a receptacle for pencils, &c. The strands themselves can quickly be lengthened or shortened independently of each other to adapt them to bundles or parcels having their ends of different dimensions. Surplus length of the binding stands or tapes is taken up by a coil-spring or retracting-cord, or both combined." (Patent Number 424,578)

George Bucher Rowe was the younger brother of my paternal great grandfather Weldon Peter Rowe. Do you have more information about the patent, its uses and the history of George?
